The next round of the climate change negotiations is taking place in Katowice, Poland, from 2nd to 14th December 2018.
The main task of the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is to finalise the implementation guidelines for the landmark Paris Agreement. These guidelines will cover rules for reporting by governments on their emissions data and policy actions, along with securing financing and other forms of support for developing countries.
COP24 will also provide an opportunity to showcase the rising tide of climate action around the world spearheaded by businesses, cities, faith groups and other stakeholders.
We have collated six articles, published in 2018, that can provide insight into these key themes for COP24. All articles are available to view for free below:
