The United Nations Climate Change Conference 2011 (COP17) took place in Durban, South Africa from 29 November to 9 December and attracted thousands of key members from governments, UN Organizations and civil society who professionally deal with climate change on a regular basis.

UNESCO participated in a wide range of events relating to its domains of action, especially migration and the social impacts of climate change; ocean-related issues; water-related issues; education to climate change, and the gender dimension of climate change.
