Conference of Parties (COP)

The premier decision-making organ of the Abidjan Convention is the Conference of Parties (COP), a biennial meeting that brings together the ministers of environment and technical experts from all the countries that are party to the Convention.

National Focal Points

Article 16(2) of the Abidjan Convention provides for the designation of an appropriate national authority by each Contracting Party to be responsible for the coordination of national efforts for implementing the Convention and its related protocols.
