Dress Code

Taking into consideration Cancun’s warm weather, the host country and the Secretariat have exempted their staff from having to use a jacket and tie. Therefore, the dress code during the COP16/CMP6 will be casual smart.

The host country suggests the use of a “Guayabera” shirt, which is traditional attire in the South East region of Mexico, and usually known as menswear, however there are female versions of this shirt as well. They are generally used with light color trousers during the day and dark color trousers at night. Otherwise, a cotton or linen long sleeved shirt in light colors is advisable for men or traditional cotton dresses for women.
