Madrid’s offer to host COP 25 next month has been accepted. After the Government of Chile confirmed Wednesday it could not host the event amid unrest in the country, the Spanish capital stepped in and will now welcome COP 25 on the same dates: 2 to 13 December.

“We are pleased to announce the COP Bureau has agreed that COP25 will take place from 2-13 December in Madrid, Spain,” said Patricia Espinosa, UN Climate Change Executive Secretary.
