ENERGIES 2050 at Katowice
from 3 to 14 December 2018
for the 24th World Climate Conference (COP24)
The 24th World Climate Conference (COP24) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will take place in Katowice (Poland) from the 3rd to the 14th of December 2018.
Key moment of the international agenda, this global conference will take place as extreme weather events intensify and as social, environmental and economic crises remind us each day of the urgency to act. At the heart of the challenges of sustainable development and of a future that we want to be positive and based on solidarity, this major event must also allow stakeholders, at all levels, to testify and to reaffirm their commitment to act and raise the collective ambition, which remains largely insufficient.
ENERGIES 2050 association will be present and deeply involved during the next COP24, as it has already been at previous COP and in particular those of Paris in 2015 (COP21), Marrakesh in 2016 (COP22) and Bonn in 2017 (COP23).
As accredited observer under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), ENERGIES 2050 is a recognized player in the fight against climate change. The association had the privilege of supporting several African countries in the preparation of their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC) and in the preparation of preparatory files for submission to the Green Climate Funds. ENERGIES 2050 is involved in several countries and territories for the implementation of low carbon development strategies. Our approach is to prioritize adaptation while increasing co-benefits in terms of mitigation.

In addition to delegations of UNFCCC’s States-Parties, several thousand organizations have already confirmed their participation and more than 50,000 visitors are expected for COP24. Spaces are rare and much sought after. For example, only a few dozen Pavilions were available in 2017 in the official space in which ENERGIES 2050 has successfully set up and animated a multi-partner pavilion of 100 m2).
