The History

We dedicate this space to the most important aspects of the COP, Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which are generally carried out between November and December of each year. The organization of these is carried out by the UN and all the member countries participate in them.

We also highlight with relevance all the Climate Conferences promoted by the United Nations that take place throughout the year, based in different parts of the world and serve to prepare the topics that will be discussed annually in the COPs.
