As traditionally to the COPs, the Heinrich Böll Foundation was present at the 18th yearly session of the Conference of Partners with an observer delegation. This year, many members of the delegation came from Arab countries, trying to raise awareness about the importance of a climate conference hosted in the region. Our delegates shared their experiences and motivations, and provided information about the topics discussed in the negotiations. The guiding question was: what is the relevance of climate politics for the Arab region?

While the web dossier “Seasons of Change” is a collection of analyses of how climate change, resource and energy politics relate to political and social change, this section on our website for the MENA region features the experiences and perspectives of our delegates to the COP.
