UNFCCC Publishes Overview of Katowice Climate Package

The secretariat of UN Climate Change has published an overview of the Katowice Climate Package, adopted at the UN Climate Change Conference COP24 in Katowice last December.

The package constitutes the guidelines for the implementation of the Paris Climate Change Agreement.

The guidelines establish an effective international system for promoting and tracking progress while empowering countries to build national systems for implementing the agreement.

“The Katowice outcome is a breakthrough that all governments can be proud of! It strengthens the Paris Agreement and it opens the doors for the implementation of climate action across the globe,” Patricia Espinosa, the UN’s Climate Chief, underlined.

The package sets out the essential guidelines and procedures that will make the Paris Agreement operational.

The successful adoption of well-crafted implementation guidelines promises to build greater trust and to strengthen international cooperation on one of the greatest challenges of our times: transitioning to a low-emissions, climate-resilient world.

At the same time, the guidelines respect the different capabilities and socio-economic realities of each country while providing the foundation for ever-increasing ambition with respect to climate action.
