The COP-19, UN Climate Change Conference 2013 concluded in Warsaw, Poland on 23 November 2013 by approving the new global treaty.

The UN climate talks concluded with delegates reaching a compromise on how to fight global warming.  After 30 hours of deadlock, they approved a way out for a new global climate treaty to be signed in Paris in 2015.

Key decisions adopted at this conference include decisions on further advancing the Durban Platform, the Green Climate Fund and Long-Term Finance, the Warsaw Framework for REDD Plus, the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage and other decisions

The nineteenth session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 19) was held from 11 to 23 November 2013 in Warsaw, Poland.
