UN climate change conference

COP24 (the 24th session of the Conference of the Parties) will be held in Katowice, Poland from December 2 to 14, 2018. 

COP is an annual meeting of the countries that are a part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC). It was adopted in 1992 to coordinate international efforts to address climate change.   

In 2015 at COP21, the Paris Agreement brought all nations together with the goal of advancing efforts to combat climate change and adapt to its effects. It charts a new course in the global climate effort. The goal for COP24 is to finalize the rules to put the agreement into action.
