Stepping up for climate action in Katowice, Poland
3-14 December, 2018

The 2018 United Nations climate change negotiations, the Conference of the Parties (COP), will be held in Katowice, Poland, 3-14 December 2018.

The COP is the main decision-making body of the United National Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Its main task is to assess the actions taken by the 198 member countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Learn more about the process here.

WWF believes that we're stronger together, and we're committed to empowering the climate community to transform society and the global economy.

The landmark Paris Agreement, now ratified by more than 150 countries, is the new universally agreed regime for global climate action. The agreement clearly sets the future to achieve collectively, with a ‘well-below 2°C threshold with best efforts to not exceed 1.5°C’.

This future calls for a total transformation of our societies and the global economy. It's a big job, and nations can't do it alone. All of us - people, cities, regions, businesses, civil society organisations and progressive national governments - have a critical role to play in this effort.
