What is COP 27?



COP 27 stands for the Conference of the Parties of which there are three: biodiversity, climate change and desertification.


These conferences were established in 1992 during the the U.N. Earth Summit. The COP on climate change is the highest level decision making forum of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and it serves as an annual gathering for governments to meet and discuss climate change. COP 27 is taking place in Egypt. Governments, civil society and other stakeholders gather to discuss climate change and its impacts, how to address it, and accelerate climate action.
