UN Climate Change Conference 2019

Further to the agreement on the implementation guidelines of the Paris Climate Change Agreement at COP 24 in Poland in 2018, UN Climate Change Conference COP 25 is designed to take the next critical steps in the UN climate change process. The key objective of the conference is to complete certain matters as regards the full operationalisation of the Paris Agreement.

COP 25 is taking place between 2 – 13 December 2019 under the Presidency of the Government of Chile is held with support from the Government of Spain.

Furthermore the conference aims to build momentum ahead of 2020, when countries are committed to submit updated national climate action plans. Important climate action work will be undertaken in areas including finance, transparency of climate action, forests and agriculture, technology, capacity building, loss and damage, indigenous people, cities, oceans and gender.

The conference also includes the fifteenth session of the COP serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol, and the second session of the COP serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement. It will also present the body of climate action already carried out by non-party stakeholders and help stimulate the action of regions, cities, businesses, investors and civil society.

Environmental law and policies constantly evolve as an integral part of processes worldwide. Given the ongoing course of globalisation, a carefully balanced exercise is required by all stakeholders of a business to comply with environmental regulation. The environmental legal framework must be strategically used to combat critical environmental problems, in the best interest of current and future generations.
