The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is the primary vehicle for international negotiations addressing anthropogenic climate change. Once a year, the 194 parties to the framework attend a meeting known as the Conference of Parties (COP). Since 2009, when COP15 was held in Copenhagen, University of Michigan students and faculty have attended as observer delegates. In November of this year, ten delegates from UM will be observing the negotiations at COP22 in Marrakech. This seminar will prepare those delegates and others interested in the UNFCCC
