FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE

IS EVERYONE'S TASK

TIME FOR ACTION

DECEMBER 2 - 13, 2019

What is the COP?

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. It was signed at the Earth Summit in 1992 and entered into force in 1994. Chile joined that year and entered into force in 1994.

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.

The first COP was held in Berlin in 1995. 24 COPs have been held to date, the last one in Katowice, Poland, in December 2018.

The COP Presidency rotates among the following 5 United Nations regions: Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Western Europe, and Latin America and the Caribbean. This time it is Chile's turn.

Why Chile?

Chile is responsible for only 0.25% of global emissions, however, our country is very vulnerable to climate change. We comply with 7 of the 9 conditions of vulnerability, which places us among the ten countries most affected by this phenomenon, according to the report of the Global Climate Risk Index 2017, presented by Germanwatch at COP22.
