The Conference of the Parties (COP) is the supreme decision-making body of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
The venue for the main conference will be Glasgow’s Scottish Events Campus. Up to 30,000 delegates are expected to attend the conference. Alok Sharma is the full-time President for COP26.
All States that are Parties to the Convention are represented at the COP, at which they review the implementation of the Convention and any other legal instruments that the COP adopts and take decisions necessary to promote the effective implementation of the Convention, including institutional and administrative arrangements.
