The world’s toiling sectors are threatened of a worsening climate crisis and increasing economic inequalities today. This partly sets the context for the 2018 climate talks, officially known as the 24th Conference of the Parties (COP24) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
This year’s talks will be held in Katowice, Poland from December 2 to 14, where an estimated 20,000 people from 190 countries are expected to attend (from country representatives to international civil society organisations)
COP24 has been dubbed “particularly crucial.” COP24 marks the first to third sessions of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA). Further, the world’s current climate treaty, the Paris Agreement (PA), marks a December 2018 deadline for setting rules for implementation.
