Registration for the 2018 Development and Climate Days in December is now open. This year’s D&C Days will aim to influence the ambition mechanism under the UNFCCC – particularly the Talanoa Dialogue and global stocktake – and inform climate action on all levels, looking ahead to 2020.

It will take place on the 8 and 9 December in Katowice, Poland, the middle weekend of the COP 24 UN climate talks.

D&C Days encourages dialogue on a range of issues that link policy, knowledge and practice, and innovative approaches encourage participants to interact, challenge existing thinking, and generate new ideas.

The 16 annual D&C Days will continue to build on the topic of Global ambition. Local action. Climate resilience for all, and will focus on: transparency and downward accountability; resilience through empowerment; financing adaptation and reducing risk; and valuing local experience and knowledge.

Within these themes D&C Days will be tackling big questions, seeking effective and practical answers, and working together on fair solutions.
