COP - ¿De qué se trata?

La respuesta política internacional al cambio climático comenzó con la adopción de la Convención Marco en 1992, que establece un marco de acción cuyo objetivo es la estabilización de las concentraciones atmosféricas de gases de efecto invernadero (GEI) para evitar "interferencias antropogénicas peligrosas en el sistema climático". La Convención, que entró en vigor el 21 de marzo de 1994, ahora cuenta con 195 partes.

Polonia - COP 19 Conclusión - 27 horas después de su hora de cierre programado, la reunión adoptó una decisión ADP que invita a las partes a iniciar o intensificar los preparativos nacionales para sus contribuciones destinadas determinados a nivel nacional.

12th November 2014

9am Peru | 2pm London | 2pm Bonn |10am New York

“The litmus test of success in Lima will be a clear draft of the universal agreement, a shared determination by all to deliver significant national contributions to build a low carbon resilient future, initial capitalisation of the Green Climate Fund, and the mobilisation of a broad coalition of actors turning potential into reality on the ground without delay."

- Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary, UNFCCC

COP20 in Lima this December is the foremost and final opportunity for global nations to draft a universal agreement on climate change before a definitive commitment in Paris in 2015.

Organiser of the Sustainable Innovation Forum 2014, Climate Action, in partnership with Peru2021, UNFCCC and Ministerio del Ambiente Peru is hosting a live webinar to discuss what to expect from COP20, potential pathways to success and how this will affect COP21 in Paris next year.

A curated evening networking reception brought to you by Climate Action and The Gold Standard Foundation

In the last two years, 100 million+ people globally have migrated to cities and by 2050, they will house up to three quarters of the worlds population.  As such, the role of cities in climate mitigation and adaptation is crucial; however climate finance has largely failed to reach these ever growing urban environments.

This high level evening, fittingly hosted in one of the most populous cities in the world, will focus on how investment can be effectively mobilised to support integrated, and socially responsible, low carbon urban development programmes that can be replicated worldwide. Keynote speakers and networking discussions will drill down specifically to the factors needed to secure investment, using examples such as the cities of Delhi, Colombo and Sakarya to demonstrate the work cities are already implementing to become more sustainable and resilient.

Press conference: This meeting is co-hosted by Climate Action, the organisers of Sustainable Innovation Forum to be held during UNFCCC COP20 in Lima on 9th December.  As an adjunct to the discussions, this evening will also mark the official initiative launch for 2014.


Date: Sunday, 21st September 2014

Time: 6.30-8.30 pm

Venue: Soho House

“Our Minister was really pleased with his participation in the Sustainable Innovation Forum… I want to congratulate your SIF team for the organisation of this event.” Walter Vergara, Chief, Climate Change and Sustainability Division (INE/CCS), Inter- American Development Bank

Now in its 5th year, the Sustainable Innovation Forum has become the largest and most influential business-governmental conference alongside the official COP20 process. This year’s forum brings together leaders from business, government and international NGOs to provide insight and share best practice on a range of discussion areas including energy, sustainable partnerships, technology and innovation and the critical debates around food and water security.

“The UNEP Sustainable Innovation Forum was by far the most interesting and dynamic side event at COP19. Panelists had very different perspectives on issues, and were leaders in their fields, which made for lively debate. It’s also great to see so many organisations that are getting on and doing something – and not waiting for the negotiations down the road to come up with an agreement before they act.” Jane Burston, Head of Centre for Carbon Measurement,National Physical Laboratory

The purpose of the forum is to debate the actions, and showcase the technologies and solutions that can accelerate sustainable green growth and drive the global green economy. The forum also provides a unique platform for senior delegates from business, government and the not-for-profit sector to come together and build productive partnerships within the wider sustainability agenda.

Organised on behalf of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) alongside the UNFCCC Conference of the Parties (COP), the forum generates robust debate and shares ideas, technology and solutions that can be turned into positive actions to climate-proof the post-2015 development agenda.

Debate and discussion will cover a range of pivotal issues within the climate change and sustainability agendas including energy transitions, low carbon infrastructures, technology innovation and transfer, partnerships, and sustainable urban growth.

COP - What’s it all about?

The international political response to climate change began with the adoption of the UNFCCC in 1992, which sets out a framework for action aimed at stabilising atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to avoid “dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system.” The Convention, which entered into force on 21 March 1994, now has 195 parties.

Poland – COP 19 Conclusion - 27 hours after its scheduled closing time, the meeting adopted an ADP decision that invites parties to initiate or intensify domestic preparations for their intended nationally-determined contributions, and resolves to accelerate the full implementation of the Bali Action Plan and pre-2020 ambition. Parties also adopted a decision establishing the Warsaw international mechanism on loss and damage, and the “Warsaw REDD+ framework,” a series of seven decisions on REDD+ finance, institutional arrangements and methodological issues.


Who attends?

In Poland last year, the conference drew over 8,300 participants, including 4,022 government officials, 3,695 representatives of UN bodies and agencies, intergovernmental organizations and civil society organizations, and 658 members of the media. This year in Peru we are also expecting a high number of participants at COP20, as Peru is cautiously vocal that Lima should produce a draft agreement for the text. COP20 President and Peruvian Minister of the Environment Manuel Pulgar-Vidal said at a Brown University conference that COP20 needs to provide a solid basis for a strong agreement in Paris.

Lima - World Heritage Site

In the north is the city of Caral, the oldest civilization of America, and to the south is the Archaeological Complex of Pachacamac. Lima’s history predates the colonial presence in the country. The establishment of the viceroyalty transformed the city into the main political and administrative center of South America. During this period, significant churches, monasteries, mansions and balconies were built. The arrival of modernity didn’t transform the historic center, which is recognized as a World Heritage Site.
