UN Climate Change Conference

Environment ministers and officials are expected to meet at the 25th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP25) in Madrid, Spain. The 12-day UN conference will take place from 02 - 13 December 2019 and targets to define the next steps to implement the Paris Climate Change Agreement. Following recent anti-government protests in Chile, the UN Climate Change Conference COP 25 will take place under the Presidency of the Government of Chile and will be held with logistical support from the Government of Spain. Almost 30,000 delegates from all over the world, including heads of governments and ministers responsible for environment and climate issues will attend.

The talks will be the latest in an annual series of UN meetings that have their seeds in the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio, which aimed at coordinating international action against climate change.
