COP23 - France committed for the implementation of the Paris Agreement
On the invitation of the Convention secretariat, the countries will meet to work on drawing up the rules for implementing the Paris Agreement and discuss increasing the implementation of national climate commitments.
A COP organized under Fijian presidency
Organized in Bonn, the COP23 will be chaired by Fiji, the first small island state to chair a COP. On 27 July the Mexican Executive Secretary of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Patricia Espinosa, underlined in this respect that “the COP23 also raises awareness of the vulnerability of islands and all nations [...] It opens the door to even more collaboration and support – for resilient communities and for the transition to growth powered by clean energy”.
France is committed to promoting and consolidating the implementation of the Paris Agreement
Following the adoption and entry into force of the agreement, France remains committed with the countries, local authorities, cities, businesses, NGOs and citizens who wish to make quick progress towards the fulfilment of the Paris Climate Agreement.
The COP23 will be a key moment for the continuation of international mobilization for the climate, particularly for the Global Climate Action Agenda that was launched in Morocco during the COP22.
Numerous stakeholders will meet in Bonn to demonstrate the reality of the action underway and contribute to proving that it is possible to reach the Paris Agreement objectives. A complete sequence dedicated to the initiatives of the Global Climate Action Agenda is planned for the COP23, with themed days on strategic sectors for climate action: renewable energy, agriculture, transport, forests, water management, finance and innovation, as well as awareness raising on gender issues and the impacts of climate change on health.
