The preparations for the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany this year are well underway and on track.
The secretariat of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, as host of the Conference, is working with the Government of Germany, and the incoming Fijian COP23 Presidency.
Speaking on the last day of the May UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Fiji’s Chief Negotiator for the COP23 Presidency, Ambassador Nazhat Shemeem Khan expressed Fiji’s gratitude for the support and encouragement it has received in the process so far.
Khan says the consultations show a clear desire that the momentum on the implementation of the Paris Climate Change Agreement is widespread.
She says Fiji is encouraged to see that the concept of ‘talanoa’ has already begun to take root in the negotiations and consultations.
She says this inclusive, respectful and participatory approach will lead to decision making that moves the global climate agenda forward.
