Information for Participants

COP23 will take place from 6 to 17 November at the World Conference Center in Bonn, Germany, the headquarters of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) secretariat. The Conference will be presided over by the Fijian Presidency.

The secretariat, as host of the Conference, is working with the Government of Germany, the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and the City of Bonn to make all the necessary logistical arrangements for the Conference.

Under the “One conference, Two zones” concept, plenary halls and meeting rooms for negotiations, delegation offices as well as major media facilities will operate in the “Bula Zone.” The “Bonn Zone” will accommodate climate action events, side events and exhibits; some media activities; and events in the delegation pavilions.
