The 29th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 29) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is set to take place in 11-24, November 2024 in Azerbaijan.
This significant event is part of an ongoing global effort to address and combat climate change. The selection of Azerbaijan as the host country for COP 29 was decided at the previous session, COP 28. This decision marks an important step for Azerbaijan in playing a key role in international climate change discussions and actions.
Azerbaijan has shown a strong commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, with targets to significantly reduce emissions by 2030 and further goals set for 2050. This aligns with the global efforts under the Paris Agreement, emphasizing the country's dedication to contributing to global climate action.
The Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC has been a critical platform since 1995, bringing together countries annually to assess progress and strategize on combating climate change. COP 29 in Azerbaijan represents a continuation of these efforts, with nations collaborating to address one of the most pressing global challenges.
As preparations for COP 29 continue, the global community looks towards Azerbaijan for hosting what promises to be a pivotal event in the ongoing climate change discourse. The conference will provide a platform for nations to share progress, challenges, and plans for a more sustainable and climate-resilient future.
