COP stands for “Conference of the Parties”.
COP refers to the decision-making body of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
In November 2021, the UK will be hosting the 26th annual session of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention, or “COP26”, in Glasgow.
At the summit, delegates including heads of state, climate experts and negotiators will come together to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change.
As well as the negotiations, there will also be space for countries, international organisations and other delegates to showcase climate action, highlight diverse climate change issues and share knowledge.
