The 18th session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will take place from Monday, 26 November to Friday, 7 December 2012 at the Qatar National Convention Centre in Doha, Qatar.

The Doha Summit faces a number of significant challenges, including the need to extend the Kyoto Protocol before it lapses at the end of the year and the requirement for diplomats to agree a roadmap for delivering a new legally-binding climate change treaty that can be agreed by 2015 and brought into effect from 2020.

The talks will also focus on working out a new roadmap for the future of the Long-term Cooperative Action (LCA) working group, which is focused on climate funding, adaptation, and technology transfer mechanisms.
