UN - CLIMATE CHANGE CONFERENCES
COP THAT - The United Nations Climate Change Conferences are yearly conferences held in the framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). They serve as the formal meeting of the UNFCCC Parties (Conference of the Parties, COP) to assess progress in dealing with climate change, and beginning in the mid-1990s, to negotiate the Kyoto Protocol to establish legally binding obligations for developed countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. From 2005 the Conferences have also served as the "Conference of the Parties Serving as the Meeting of Parties to the Kyoto Protocol" (CMP); also parties to the Convention that are not parties to the Protocol can participate in Protocol-related meetings as observers. From 2011 the meetings have also been used to negotiate the Paris Agreement as part of the Durban platform activities until its conclusion in 2015, which created a general path towards climate action. The first UN Climate Change Conference was held in 1995 in Berlin.
With the advent of the UNCCCs in 1995 the world finally had a forum to deal with climate change and negotiate international agreements in a manner that is likely to yield results.
There has been a Conference every year since the founding assembly at which many important Agreements as to targets and issues were raised and resolved, though, having agreed in principle some parties have failed to follow through once they realized that economic competition could get tougher in the sacrifice for a better world. In this case a better world is a place that is sustainable for future generations.
The UNFCCC secretariat is located at two different locations.
