Media accreditation for the Bonn Climate Change Conference - November 2017 (COP 23)

In an effort to meet the high demand for media accreditation to COP 23, the quota has been raised. The new ceiling of 2,000 gives more media a chance to attend. Late applications will be submitted until we reach the quota.  If the credentials submitted meet UN criteria and we have the space, we will process your accreditation. There is, however, no guarantee that we will be able to allow access to the conference.

Online accreditation is the only official channel to obtain registration for the media.

How to apply for media accreditation

1. Go to the Online Registration System
2. Look on the top left corner for options to either login or create an account
3. If you have an account, log in with your e-mail address and password
4. In the upper right-hand corner of the screen, select "COP 23" as the current meeting
5. Upload the required documentation and click on "Submit application"

Only completed applications will be considered. Delays could occur if the request does not have the required documents (copy of press card, letter of assignment) or is not submitted.
Once the request is approved, a confirmation will be sent to the e-mail address on file in the online account. You need to come in person to collect your media pass.

Please note that applying for accreditation does not guarantee registration to COP 23. The secretariat may, at any time and for safety and security reasons, put measures in place to manage the number of accredited media who are able to attend the conference.
