Following BSTDB’s application to the United Nations Climate Change Conference, the Bank has received the status of the Observer Intergovernmental Organization (IGO) to the Conference of the Parties (COP).

The decision was taken at the 23rd session of COP held in Bonn on 6-17 November, 2017. COP is the supreme decision-making body of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.


Admittance to COP will open opportunities for Bank’s closer cooperation with the United Nations and other international organizations in tackling climate change.
