The United Nations Conference of the Parties on Climate Change held its 20th annual gathering in Lima, Peru, from December 1 to 12, 2014, to find ways to slow global warming. The conference aimed to build upon a climate agreement which will be placed into effect in 2020. The Kyoto Protocol, the last agreement made, was unsuccessful in limiting the emissions of greenhouse gases.
