Informal ministerial meeting to prepare for COP21 (Paris, November 8 to 10, 2015)
Laurent Fabius, COP21 President, this morning presented to the press the main goals of the informal ministerial meeting - the “pre-COP” - which he will chair together with Manuel Pulgar Vidal, Peruvian Minister of Environment and COP20 President.
This “pre-COP” meeting will take place in Paris from November 8 to 10 and will bring together around 70 countries, including almost 60 at the ministerial level. Four major items will be included on the agenda: the ambitions of the agreement, its fairness, the concrete actions to be undertaken before 2020 and the funding required after 2020.
With three weeks left until the opening of the Paris conference, this meeting is a key step toward reaching a compromise that will ensure the adoption of a universal, ambitious and legally binding agreement in December.
