COP 21: Critical for eliminating hunger

Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) have committed to reaching a new post-Kyoto legally-binding agreement on climate change at the end of 2015 in Paris at the Conference of Parties (COP).

This agreement is essential to limit the extent of climate change and manage its impacts. The negotiations are also critical for the achievement of the World Food Programme's (WFP) mandate to eliminate hunger.

World Food programme will participate in COP in following ways:


  • High-level UN side event on food security and agriculture, Monday 7 December
  • A joint exhibit on food security and agriculture
  • WFP is supporting the organisation of a number of UN and other side events at COP21 including on disaster risk reduction, climate services, and climate analysis.
