The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is the primary vehicle for international negotiations addressing anthropogenic climate change. Once a year, the parties to the framework attend a meeting known as the Conference of the Parties (COP). The University of Michigan attained observer status in 2009, and students and faculty have attended, every year, as observer delegates. This course, provided in the Fall term, prepares student delegates and others interested in the UNFCCC. Outreach to the University community is required after the conference.
This course is taught in Fall A.
