The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is the international response to climate change. It is a treaty that sets out the basic responsibilities of the 196 Parties (States) plus the European Union to fight climate change. It was signed at the Earth Summit in 1992 and entered into force in 1994. Chile joined that year and entered into force in 1994.
The Conference of the Parties (COP) is the supreme decision-making body of the Convention. The Parties meet annually to review progress in the implementation of the Convention, while other instruments underpinning its implementation are proposed, assessed and approved.
Within the framework of COP25, of which Chile will be the host country, Eurochile with the Fundación para el Conocimiento Madrimasd will organize a Circular Economy Meeting on December 10 in Madrid, Spain, whose main theme will be “Circular Economy Encounter as a tool to mitigate climate change and development engine for SMEs ”.
