As a UNFCCC Observer, Monash sends delegations to the annual UN Climate Change Conferences (also referred to as Conferences of the Parties, or COPs). COP is the most important annual global climate change event. It includes high level negotiations on the global climate change agreement (the Paris Agreement), as well as an extensive program of side events on every aspect of climate change action.
