We have been participating at the UNFCCC Conference of Parties (COP) every year since 2021. COP is the main decision-making body of the UNFCCC. It includes representatives of all the ‘Parties’, i.e. countries that have agreed to participate in and be bound by the UNFCCC. COP meetings primarily revolve around negotiations and debates. The aim is to review progress towards the overall goal of the UNFCCC: to limit climate change. The attendees at COP are representatives of governments (Parties) or non-party ‘observer’ organisations, which include non-governmental organisations such as civil society organisations, the private sector, financial institutions, subnational authorities, and local communities.
