IFAD at COP 25 - UN climate change conference
02 - 13 December 2019

The Climate Change Conference, which will feature the 25th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 25) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and meetings of the UNFCCC subsidiary bodies, will take place from 2-13 December 2019.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is the international response to climate change. It is a treaty that sets out the basic responsibilities of the 196 Parties (States) plus the European Union to fight climate change.

The Conference of the Parties (COP) is the supreme decision-making body of the Convention. The Parties meet annually to review progress in the implementation of the Convention, while other instruments underpinning its implementation are proposed, assessed and approved.

IFAD will be emphasising the potential role of agriculture as one of the solutions to the climate crisis and the need to contribute to the adaptation efforts of smallholder farmers.
