Accreditation for the Lima Climate Change Conference is open. Deadline is 24
The secretariat has received a high number of accreditation applications and will be enforcing a quota
for the maximum level of participants in relation to the physical capacity of the conference and media
facilities, taking into account other participants and fire and security regulations.
Applications may still be submitted up until the deadline and will be considered on a case-by-case
basis. If the applicant's credentials meet UN criteria and there is space, the accreditation will
be processed. There is, however, no guarantee that it will be possible to allow access to the
conference for late applicants.
The online system is the only official channel to obtain
registration for UNFCCC conferences. Please go to the online system to apply.
