Support to prepare the 20th UNFCCC Conference of the Parties in Peru (COP 20)
As of: May 2019
Objective and activities
The 20th UNFCCC Conference of the Parties, COP 20, took place in December 2014 in Lima, Peru. The organization of the COP required not only extensive logistical preparations, but also had to be prepared politically. This included the participation of Peruvian representatives at UNFCCC meetings and other relevant events leading to COP 20. Through the support offered by this project, the short-term financing needs to prepare for the COP 20 were partially covered. The support also increased the capacity of the Peruvian Ministry of Environment (MINAM).
State of implementation/results
- The project has helped to reduce temporary financial and personnel bottlenecks in the preparation of the climate negotiations. The COP 20 has been implemented successfully.
