The Climate Action Summit, held in New York in September 2019, provided a foundation for new initiatives that can reduce emissions and build climate resilience and adaptation efforts. But the world needs to move quickly to follow through and get back on track to limit climate change.
The Madrid Climate Change Conference – COP25 – will bring the world together to consider ways to strengthen the implementation of the Paris Agreement. Taking place from 2 to 13 December in Madrid, the Conference comes at a time when new data shows the climate emergency is getting worse every day, and is impacting people’s lives everywhere, whether from extreme heat, air pollution, wildfires, intensified flooding or droughts.
On Monday, the United Nations will kick off critical negotiations on how to address the global climate emergency collectively and urgently. World leaders, experts, activists, creative thinkers, and private sector and local community representatives will gather to work on a collective action plan to realize critical commitments made by all the countries of the world in Paris, four years ago.
UN News put together this guide on COP25 to answer some of the biggest questions you may have and make sure you’re all caught up, with a ringside seat on the action.
