According to the UNFCCC website:

 

 

"In UN language, the United Nations Climate Change Conference hosted by Kenya is described as the second meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (COP/MOP 2), held in conjunction with the twelfth session of the Conference of the Parties to the Climate Change Convention (COP 12)."
