The UN Climate Change Conference COP 25 is currently (2 – 13 December 2019) taking place under the Presidency of the Government of Chile and with logistical support from the Government of Spain in Madrid Spain.
The conference is designed to take the next crucial steps in the UN climate change process. Following the agreement on the implementation guidelines of the Paris Agreement at COP 24 in Poland last year, a key objective is to complete several matters with respect to the full operationalization of the Paris Climate Change Agreement.
At COP25, there is also a dedicated Pavilion on Cryosphere. The COP25 Cryosphere Pavilion is co-organized by Bolin Centre at the Stockholm University, our partner institute and lead of our WP1, and is the first of its kind at a UNFCCC COP. The Pavilion will host a series of permanent exhibits, expert conferences and ministerial events.
