The annual UN Climate Change Conference (COP24) took place 2-14 December, 2018 in Katowice, Poland.   

In a Press Release issued at the official opening of the conference, the UNFCCC said the goal was finalizing the implementation guidelines for the Paris Climate Change Agreement. The guidelines will provide clarity on how to implement the landmark agreement fairly and transparently for all.

A summary video presentation of GEF’s submission to the stocktake on pre-2020 implementation and ambition at the COP24 can be found here. The original full GEF submission to the stocktake on pre-2020 implementation and ambition is also available.

A video, Catalyzing Transformation: GEF at Climate COP24, captures some of the highlights of GEF's activities at the conference.

GEF Partnership Pavilion

The GEF Partnership Pavilion at COP24 hosted a series of events, briefings, launches and receptions.

To help confront climate change, we need to transform the systems that support how we live, how we eat, how we move, and how we produce and consume. With a focus on delivering transformational change that will safeguard the climate and other global commons, some 30 events were co-organized with many of the GEF implementing agencies, and other partners.

Gustavo Fonseca opened the 2018 Rio Conventions Pavilion, hosted by the GEF Partnership Pavilion at the COP24. Watch the video here. A wrap up video of GEF side events at COP24 is also available.

Thursday 6th through Saturday 8th the GEF Partnership Pavilion hosted the Rio Pavilion. More details on events held there can be found on their website.
