The World Climate negotiation simulation events  which have been held in different parts of the world has given people the taste of what it is like to be a negotiator at the UN Climate Change Negotiations.

World Climate is a leading initiative developed by Climate Interactive an NGO founded by former doctoral student of Professor John Sterman at MIT in collaboration with the University of Mohammed VI Polytechnique.




On Friday 25th November, 2016 a Simulation event was organized by Gabila Franklin Neba, YALI West Africa Cohort V Fellow from Cameroon in collaboration with the YALI West Africa RLC and other YALI Fellows in the Climate Intervention Sector. The host was trained last May 2016 as a World Climate Negotiation Simulation Facilitator in Marrakech – Morocco; an initiative leading up to COP 22 designed to build African Capacity on climate change modeling and decision tools, with special focus on Agriculture and Climate Change.

The platform of YALI presented a great platform and an opportunity for Africa’s finest group of young Climate Activists to host the World Climate Negotiation Simulation event. The event played host to one of Ghana’s finest Young Climate Activists, Joshua Amponsem who also happens to be a World Climate Ambassador.

During the Simulation, The Young African Leaders who have strongly reaffirmed the need the critical need and strong imperative for effective leadership in Africa became negotiators for different regions of the World and worked to negotiate a global climate agreement. The ultimate goal of this negotiation as agreed last year in Paris COP21 is limiting Global Warming by 2100 at or below 2o C well above pre-industrial levels.

The first round of Negotiations ended up with 3.4 o C with those of the Developing countries refusing to decline emissions saying the rich nations of the world must agree to more significant action especially with their past contributions to the problem. That they will not continue to pay the price for their past emissions

This led to the second round of negotiations whereby the developed nations mounted pressure on the developing to reduce their emissions, which are growing faster than theirs. This met a strong counter argument that their emissions per person is far higher than those in the developing countries (US emissions per person are 400 times more than those in Mali).

This second round ended with an agreement that landed down to a global temperature increase of 2.4 o C. the target of 2 was not met but a lot of improvement from 4.5 to 2.4. The event has a great success and made a lot lasting impressions on all the fellows who attended the event
