NegToolKitA Negotiator’s Toolkit was written by the Quaker United Nations Office (QUNO) to support negotiators engage with their governments on reasons why urgent, rights-based climate action is critical to the long-term well-being and stability of their countries.  The booklet offers ten concise, expert arguments which are referenced to published literature.  This publication was inspired by a side event co-hosted by QUNO, Brahma Kumaris and Newcastle University, during a climate change conference in May 2017, in Bonn, Germany. This second edition includes additional information and references.
