The COP23 in Bonn
The 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP 23 will be held in Bonn, Germany between the 6th and 17th of November 2017. The Pacific Island nation of Fiji will preside over the COP.
COP 23 will build on the progress made in previous years and particularly that of the Paris Agreement of COP21, which aims to keep global temperature rise below 2°C, with efforts to keep temperature rise to 1.5°C. COP23 is a meeting of a technical nature, with much emphasis on developing the rulebook for the implementation of the Paris Agreement. COP23 is of great importance to ensure that all details of the Paris Agreement are decided such that they will facilitate the process of ambitious climate action in the years to come.
