"For the third year running, COP discussions get off to an early start at the Copenhagen Climate Ministerial. This year’s ministerial, hosted by Denmark in cooperation with the COP presidencies of the United Arab Emirates and Azerbaijan on 21 and 22 March 2024, will lay the path to a successful COP29, building on the historic UAE Consensus result from Dubai.

The Copenhagen Climate Ministerial will gather around 40 climate leaders and ministers from around the world to push for climate action and an ambitious COP29 result. It will focus on implementation of the groundbreaking commitments from COP28 while setting the course for COP29 in Azerbaijan in November.

The Copenhagen Climate Ministerial will be the first time since COP28 in Dubai that climate leaders and ministers from central negotiation groups will meet in person to discuss issues central to the COP process. The COP28-president Sultan Ahmed al-Jaber will chair the meeting with the incoming COP29-president designate Mukhtar Babayev and Danish host Dan Jørgensen. Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Simon Stiell, will also attend the meeting."
