The Climate Summit 2019 (COP25) will be held in Madrid from December 2 to 13 at IFEMA, after last November 1 the Governing Board of the Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), approved the proposal of the Chilean government for the Summit to take place in Madrid. The event will be held under the Presidency of Chile and with the support of the Spanish government.
According to data provided by IFEMA, COP25 will occupy 7 pavilions (more than 100,000 m2), as well as an area of 13,000 m2 for the congress area. The assembly is expected to begin on November 17, following the criteria established by the UN and adapting the scheme that Chile already had to the characteristics of the new enclosure. An estimated 25,000 attendees from almost 200 countries around the world are estimated.
The COP25 will be divided into two main spaces: the blue zone and the green zone.
The first is the one administered by the United Nations, where the negotiation sessions of the 25th conference, the 15th meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP15) and the 2nd meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA 2) will take place, as well as the parallel acts of the official UN agency. In addition, it will have an area dedicated to the “Global Climate Action Agenda” and workplaces reserved for both the press and United Nations personnel.
On the other hand, the green zone is the space for social participation. Located next to the blue zone, it will also have two areas: an open dialogue pavilion, aimed at the general public and civil society; and a multipurpose space, to host cultural events.
