The annual UN Climate Change Conference (COP24) is taking place 2-14 December, 2018 in Katowice, Poland.   

In a Press Release issued at the official opening of the conference, the UNFCCC said the goal was finalizing the implementation guidelines for the Paris Climate Change Agreement. The guidelines will provide clarity on how to implement the landmark agreement fairly and transparently for all.

GEF Partnership Pavilion

The GEF Partnership Pavilion at COP24 is hosting a series of events, briefings, launches and receptions.

To help confront climate change, we need to transform the systems that support how we live, how we eat, how we move, and how we produce and consume. With a focus on delivering transformational change that will safeguard the climate and other global commons, some 30 events are co-organized with many of the GEF implementing agencies, and other partners.

Gustavo Fonseco opens the 2018 Rio Conventions Pavilion, hosted by the GEF Partnership Pavilion at the COP24. Watch the video here.

Thursday 6th through Saturday 8th the GEF Partnership Pavilion was hosting the Rio Pavilion. For all information about events held there please consult their website here.
