The 2017 UN Climate Change Conference – specifically the 23rd Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP23) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – will take place from 6 to 17 November at the World Conference Centre in Bonn, Germany, the seat of the Climate Change Secretariat. The Conference will be convened under the Presidency of Fiji.

The UNFCCC secretariat, as host of the Conference, says it is working very closely with the Government of Germany, the State of North-Rhine Westphalia and the City of Bonn to make all the necessary arrangements.

Information on the venue, the rental of office space for delegations and space for events, registration for the conference and other services provided will be made available in due course, the UN body adds.

Information on hotel reservations in Bonn and the region will be posted in the coming days once final contact details are established, UNFCCC states further.

For initial information on the conference venue, the City of Bonn and the region, as well as general accommodation options available in and around Bonn, World Conference Centre Bonn and City of Bonn are vital links.
