Facilitators for the seven dif­ferent Talanoa Dialogue sessions participated in the dialogue in Bonn, Germany.

The briefing was chaired by the COP23 Chief Negotiator Luke Daunivalu who outlined the pro­cess of the Dialogue itself and reminded the facilitators and their teams on ensuring that the process adheres to the spirit of Talanoa.

The seven Talanoa Dialogue ses­sions ran parallel to each other and saw party and non party stakeholders present their ‘sto­ries’ that asks three questions i.e: ‘Where Are We?’, ‘Where Do We Want to Go?” and “How Do We Get There”.

The seven facilitators for the dia­logue were:

Luke Daunivalu – Chief Negotia­tor

Ambassador Deo Saran – COP23 Envoy to the UNFCCC

Ambassador Tui Cavuilati

Amena Yauvoli

Christine Fung

Timaima Vakadewabuka

Peter Emberson

To remind participants on the objective of their work, each Ta­lanoa Dialogue room has been named after places in Fiji that are impacted by climate change, which includes Lakeba, Koro, Ba, Rakiraki, Tailevu, Kadavu and Bua.

The two Presidencies (ie COP23 and COP24 presidents), with the assistance of the UNFCCC secre­tariat, issued a summary report on the organisation of the Ta­lanoa Dialogue during the May sessions. This report will contain procedural and substantive infor­mation relevant to the dialogue, including detailed information of the discussions and stories shared during meetings held on May 6, 2018.

The report will be made available after the May sessions.
