COP24 is the informal name of the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). COP24 2018 will take place in Katowice, Poland from 3-14 December.

The Conference of the Parties (COP) is the supreme body of the UNFCCC and consists of representatives of each party. The representatives of the COP hold annual sessions to decide on decisions necessary to ensure the effective implementation of the provisions of the Convention and to review the implementation of these provisions.
