The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) binds over 190 Parties. Its nearly universal membership meets annually to work together to tackle climate change. The 2018 UN climate change conference took place in Katowice, Poland from 2-14 December 2018.
IIED researchers and partners were present throughout the two-week gathering. They worked to ensure that the battle against climate change focuses on the poorest countries, which are most at risk, and to ensure that the Paris Agreement, already behind schedule, was put into action with rules that are fair and transparent for all. We also supported negotiators from the least developed countries, organised side events and workshops, and analysed progress at the talks.
