COP 25: Tracking progress on the path to implementing the Paris Agreement

Experts, events and resources for the Madrid UN climate talks

A delegation of Environmental Defense Fund experts will be attending the UN climate conference in Madrid December 2-13. Our team will be closely observing the carbon markets negotiations around Article 6 of the Paris Agreement, and advocating for strong rules to avoid the risk of “double counting” of emissions reductions.

We'll also be engaging in high-level country forums on the urgent need and opportunity to dramatically cut fast-acting methane gases across the world's oil and gas industry, as well as discussing climate strategies for creating more resilient oceans and fisheries.
