BRIEFING

The largest Climate Change event of the year, COP 20 faces the challenge of leading negotiations towards the drafting of a climate protocol that could be approved by the UN Member States in 2015.If successful, said agreement would replace the Kyoto Protocol whose official deadline was reached in 2012. Hence the host country’s decision to collaborate closely with Poland, COP 19’s host, and France, COP 21’s host.It will be the first time that the Latin-American Independent Association, conformed by Peru, Colombia, Dominican Republic and Panama, and officially recognised by the United Nations Climate Change Secretariat, participates.
