Saturday, January 27, 2018

Update: 3:38PM AN ONLINE platform to facilitate the Talanoa Dialogue, touted by Fiji in Bonn, Germany last year as the best way to get the planet in a conversation about making the Paris Agreement a reality, went live yesterday.

In a statement announcing the creation and operation of the Talanoa Dialogue Portal, UN Climate Change said the initiative would facilitate aims for higher climate ambition

The portal, located at the address: https://talanoadialogue.com will act as a depository for any person or organisation whether government or civil society to make known their recommendations for how to keep the global average temperature rise to below 2C degrees and as close as possible to 1.5C.

Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of UN Climate Change said the portal would be a 'central point.'

"The portal is the gateway for the Talanoa Dialogue. It represents the central point for everyone to make their views heard around enhanced ambition. Additionally, it will make available other key resources for the dialogue," said Ms Espinosa.

"I very much welcome the portal because it provides transparency and broadens participation in the dialogue. I look forward to many governments and other actors making their submissions via the portal as part of world-wide efforts required for the next level of climate action and ambition," she said.

"The Pacific island concept of 'Talanoa' was introduced by Fiji, which held the Presidency of the COP23 UN Climate Change Conference. It aims at an inclusive, participatory and transparent dialogue."
