Mitigation Work Programme

Mitigation Work Programme:

The road to the COP29 to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Baku appears bumpy after the mid-year climate talks in Bonn, Germany concluded on June 13, with little progress, according to researchers from the Centre for Science and Environment.

  • The Mitigation Work Programme (MWP) is a process established by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to help countries scale up their mitigation ambition and implementation to achieve the 1.5°C goal of the Paris Agreement.


  • Foster innovative discussions among policymakers and stakeholders to overcome barriers to scaling up mitigation action.
  • Ensure diverse participation to support national processes and practical domestic policy making pathways.
  • Identify cost-effective and scalable mitigation opportunities to help countries implement and enhance their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
  • Conduct annual global dialogues and investment-focused events from 2023-2026.
  • Focus on equity, sustainable development, and synergies with adaptation, considering regional approaches.


  • The UNFCCC, established in 1992 during the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, aims to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations to prevent dangerous climate change, ensuring ecosystems adapt naturally and sustainable development is maintained.
