Reports on Climate Change Conferences, 2000-2019

We are delighted to share this collection of editorials and reports on different Conference of the Parties (COPs) and Subsidiary Bodies (SBs) meetings, which Climate Policy Journal has published in the last 20 years.

Take a trip down memory lane, and enjoy reading about some of those key landmarks: the collapse of negotiations at The Hague (2000), the often-forgotten breakthrough in Montreal (2005), the drama of Copenhagen (2009), the tensions in Durban (2011) and Lima (2014), the “mirage of Madrid” (2019), and many more.
