Welcome to the official website of the COP23 Presidency, which is held by the Republic of Fiji. COP23 refers to the 23rd annual Conference of the Parties to the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. This is a place for the concerned public worldwide to begin – or continue – their engagement in the effort to combat global warming and the human activity that causes it. It will be a place to find information about climate change and its effects, learn about the objectives of COP23, read statements and speeches by the COP23 President, Fijian Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama, and find out more about innovative climate action initiatives and projects. It will also be a place to highlight the particular challenges that climate change presents to Fiji and other vulnerable areas around the globe.
