Bumpy Road to COP29

GS III: Environment and Ecology

About Mitigation Work Programme:

The Mitigation Work Programme (MWP) is an initiative developed by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to support countries in enhancing their mitigation ambitions and implementation efforts, aligned with the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C.

Objectives:
  • Generate Discussions: Encourage innovative dialogues among policymakers and stakeholders to address obstacles in scaling up mitigation efforts.
  • Inclusive Participation: Promote broad participation to bolster national processes and practical domestic policymaking pathways.
  • Explore Opportunities: Identify cost-effective and scalable mitigation strategies to aid countries in achieving and enhancing their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
  • Operationalization: Organize annual global dialogues and investment-focused events from 2023 to 2026.
  • Address Equity and Sustainable Development: Emphasize equity, sustainable development, and synergies with adaptation, considering regional contexts.

UNFCCC:

The UNFCCC, established in 1992 during the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, aims to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations to prevent dangerous climate change, ensuring natural adaptation of ecosystems and promoting sustainable development.
