COP: What’s It All About?

30.11.23 | Cuca Margoux

COP, or the Conference of Parties, is an annual United Nations summit about the climate crisis. The conference is where the world comes together to discuss, negotiate and chart a course towards a more sustainable, climate-resilient future.  

The aim? To make sure all Parties are on track to address climate change, so we can limit greenhouse gas emissions to a level that keeps dangerous human-induced climate change in check.  

COP21, which was held in 2015, was a pivotal moment in the process as all Parties adopted the historic Paris Agreement – the first ever universal, legally binding global climate agreement that agrees to limit global temperature rise to well below 2˚C above pre-industrial levels, with an aspirational goal of 1.5˚C. All Parties also committed to submitting Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), which are detailed reports on how they plan to mitigate climate change and adapt to its consequences.
