Building Consensus in the UNFCCC

Abstract

This Working Paper is part of the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN)’s on-going work on consensus building, in which negotiators under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) share their experience of working toward consensus among the Parties. It is intended to prompt further discussion around the negotiation and consensus-building process, and is part of CDKN’s work to amplify the voices of poor and most climate-vulnerable countries within the international negotiations.

This paper provides an introduction to the UNFCCC negotiation process and suggests how consensus may be achieved. It is aimed particularly at negotiators who have just joined the process, but should also be of interest to facilitators and more experienced negotiators, by provoking reflection or presenting new perspectives to be explored.
