The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), established in 1994, aims to stabilize the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere at a level that prevents “dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system”.
The Framework’s Conference of Parties (COP) was created and put in place in order to structure the efforts of the Parties to the Convention as they address climate change. The COP meets annually to review and assess the implementation of the UNFCCC and any other legal instruments the body adopts with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and fighting climate change.
At this year’s COP, COP22, IRENA will host several side events related to advancing the deployment of renewable energy. Details of the side events can be found on the renewable energy track website.
