🌍 Why it matters for the planet: The outcomes of the Bonn conference will shape the agenda and agreements at COP29, influencing global climate policies
• Effective negotiations here are essential for setting new climate finance goals and addressing loss and damage funding, critical for supporting developing nations in mitigating and adapting to climate impacts

⏭️ What's next: Participants will work on finalizing draft conclusions to be recommended at COP29
• Key issues include setting post-2025 climate finance targets, integrating the global fossil fuel phase-out pledge into Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), and interpreting the Global Stocktake outcomes to keep global warming within 1.5°C

💬 One quote: "The EU must be a driving force for agreeing a robust new climate finance goal for post-2025 that centres public finance and is needs-based, fair and equitable," says Emilia Runberg, Climate & Development Policy Coordinator at CAN Europe
