In March and April 2014, the Centre for Multilateral Negotiations arranged two negotiation management workshops for the top management of the UNFCCC Secretariat, including the Executive Secretary, and for 45 officials from the French Foreign and Environment Ministries to support the COP21 facilitation strategy.


“I and my team greatly benefited from Kai Monheim’s presentation in 2014 on the lessons learned from previous presidencies. It helped us structure our approach to prepare and later exercise the presidency of COP21. The lessons drawn by Kai resonated in the many steps we took when interacting, at different levels, with parties to the UNFCC, and, in no small ways, contributed to the success of Paris.”
