6 Oct - 17 Oct : 12th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 12) 6 to 17 October 2014 Pyeongchang, Republic of Korea
  Conference of the Parties (COP)
Background and Status

The Conference of the Parties is the governing body of the Convention, and advances implementation of the Convention through the decisions it takes at its periodic meetings.

To date the Conference of the Parties has held 11 ordinary meetings, and one extraordinary meeting (the latter, to adopt the Biosafety Protocol, was held in two parts). From 1994 to 1996, the Conference of the Parties held its ordinary meetings annually. Since then these meetings have been held somewhat less frequently and, following a change in the rules of procedure in 2000, will now be held every two years.

The Eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity was be held in Hyderabad, India (18 - 20 October 2012). The Twelfth meeting of the Conference of the Parties will take place in Pyeongchang, Republic of Korea (6 - 17 October 2014).
