Special Event

21st Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change

(COP21)
Nov 30, 2015 - 02:00 pm CET to Dec 12, 2015 - 02:00 am CET

France will chair and host the 21st Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21/CMP11), from 30 November to 11 December 2015. The conference is crucial because the expected outcome is a new international agreement on climate change, applicable to all, to keep global warming below 2°C. 

In addition to hosting an exhibit booth at COP21, IFPRI will participate in a session on December 3 titled "Colombia tackles climate change: Forests, agriculture and land use in a national green growth vision". One of the side events taking place alongside COP21 is the 2015 Global Landscapes Forum, where IFPRI is also participating.
