- 23 March: This year's Ministerial on Climate Action (MoCA) will take place, which was expected to take place in June, as is usual. With the climate and development ministerial (CDM) on March 31st, I will be focusing my efforts on the CDM. Will anyone be focusing on MoCA this year?
- June: Biennial high-level ministerial dialogue (HLMD) on Climate Finance
- June: Partnering for Green Growth & the Global Goals (P4G) summit (TBD)
- November: Article 9.5 of Paris Agreement ministerial dialogue in 2021 (Art. 9.5. refers to the request that developed countries communicate what climate finance support they will provide to developing countries, including projected climate finance).
