For the third consecutive year, the U.S. Department of State is organizing and hosting a U.S. Center at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties. This public diplomacy initiative, made possible by input and support from multiple U.S. government agencies, academic institutions, non-governmental organizations, private sector entities, and other stakeholders, will highlight key climate programs and scientific research, underscoring the strong actions the U. S. is taking at home and the robust strategy the U. S. is pursuing abroad to combat this global challenge. This year, several side events will focus on U.S. engagement in Africa.

The U.S. Center will be located in the North Plaza of the Durban International Convention Center.

The U.S. Center, open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., is where visitors can learn more about U.S. climate actions, participate in detailed discussions on key issues, and view stunning and powerful hyperwall data visualizations on a 5-meter-wide (16 feet) video panel. U. S. and international leaders in the fight against climate change will headline a varied series of panels during the two weeks of COP-17.
