The UK’s objectives for the 21st meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP21) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) are to secure an ambitious and legally binding agreement that includes mitigation commitments from all countries to help reduce emissions globally, consistent with a path towards the 2°C goal. The UK also wants the Agreement to recognise the importance of, and encourage, support to those who need it, particularly the poorest and most vulnerable, to take climate action and develop climate resilience.
