The conference includes the 5th meeting of the contracting parties of the Paris Agreement as well as the 18th meeting of the contracting parties of the Kyoto Protocol.

Furthermore, the first global stocktaking of the implementation of the Paris Agreement will be carried out during the COP. This will help to assess the collective progress of the global community after reaching the halfway point of the 2030 Agenda.
