The Cities and Regions Talanoa Dialogues convene local, regional and national governments to drive multilevel climate action in a rapidly urbanizing world. Through these dialogues, local and regional governments are engaging in stocktaking efforts and helping strengthen climate action at all levels, from global to local.

Learn more about the Talanoa Dialogue and how cities and regions are contributing through multilevel climate discussions.

Talanoa is a traditional approach used in Fiji and the Pacific to engage in an inclusive, participatory and transparent dialogue (for more information, see decision 1/CP.23, annex II).

At COP21, a decision was made to convene a Facilitative Dialogue among Parties in 2018 to take stock of the collective efforts of Parties on the goals of the Paris Agreement, and to inform the preparation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Building on this mandate, it was decided to have this dialogue be known as the Talanoa Dialogue, launching it to start from January 2018 to culminate at COP24.
