Santiago, Chile


The Santiago Climate Change Conference, which will feature the 25th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 25) to the UNFCCC and meetings of the UNFCCC subsidiary bodies, will take place from 2-13 December 2019. The pre-sessional period will be from 26 November - 1 December 2019.

As decided at the conclusion of COP 24 in Poland, COP 25 will take place in Chile, with a pre-COP meeting taking place in Costa Rica from 8 - 10 October. Known as the "Time for Action" COP due to the need for all countries to expand their commitments to limit global warming, the conference will take place at Santiago's Ciudad Parque Bicentenario, and the Presidency will be assumed by Chile's Minister of Environment, Carolina Schmidt.

The COP is the supreme decision-making body of the UNFCCC, in which Parties meet annually to review progress in the implementation of climate change action, while other instruments underpinning its implementation are proposed, assessed and approved. In particular, the following topics will be highlighted by the host country during the conference: oceans, Antarctica, biodiversity, forests, adaptation, cities, renewable energies, circular economy and electromobility.
