Discussing the financial implications of combating climate change, with a special emphasis on the global energy transition

The Conference of Parties(COP) refers to yearly conferences held by the member countries of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) These summits are crucial gatherings in which nations debate, negotiate, and act to combat climate change. The 29th conference, known as COP29, is slated to take place in Baku, Azerbaijan from November 2024. COP29 will prioritise furthering the objectives of the UNFCCC and the Paris Agreement, which include limiting global warming, preparing for the effects of climate change, and raising funds for these initiatives. At DSMUN, the financial effects of reducing climate change will be covered at the conference's 17th edition, with an emphasis on the global energy transition in particular. The Executive Board expects that delegates will have thoroughly investigated their portfolios and hopes that all delegates will have a fruitful and intellectually stimulating experience as they strive to propose financial solutions for the energy transition in order to transform concepts into workable plans for a sustainable future.
