PREPARATIONS for the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn this year (COP23, from 6 to 17 November) -- co-hosted by Fiji --  are well underway and on track to deliver the infrastructure and arrangements needed for a successful meeting that can play its role in advancing the aims and ambitions of the Paris Agreement.

Delegates will be able work in state-of-the-art conference facilities, and benefit from an array of services, exhibitions, concerts and other cultural events, which the citizens of Bonn can also enjoy.

The secretariat of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), as host of the conference, is working with the government of Germany, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the city of Bonn and the incoming Fijian COP23 presidency to ensure a dynamic and successful conference.

It is very timely for this edition of Pacific Journalism Review to publish the first collection of peer-reviewed research papers on Asia-Pacific climate change research.
