UN climate change conference (COP24)

IIED at the 2018 UNFCCC climate change summit in Katowice, Poland (COP24)

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 will take place in Katowice, Poland from 2-14 December 2018.

IIED researchers and partners will be present throughout the two-week gathering. They will be working 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, is put into action with rules that are fair and transparent for all. We will also be supporting negotiators from the Least Developed Countries, organising side events and workshops, and analysing progress at the talks.
