The European Commission said on December 3 that this year’s UN climate conference would be a key moment for implementation of the Paris Agreement, with Parties aiming to finalize detailed rules that will enable the landmark accord to be put into practice across the world.

The 24th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change– ‘COP24’ – is taking place from December 3-14 in Katowice, Poland, presided over by the Polish government, bringing together ministers and government officials, as well as a wide range of stakeholder representatives.
