Delegation from the Principality attends COP 23 in Bonn

The first step will be to use Bonn to launch a year-long dialogue on the actions already taken and the actions to be pursued. The other very specific goal of COP 23 will be to make progress on the rules for implementing the Paris Agreement, a technical and political phase.

COP 23 runs until Friday 17 November. It is being chaired by Fiji, an island nation which is particularly impacted by the effects of climate change.

A few days before the Bonn Conference, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) published data showing that atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2), responsible for global warming, increased at a record rate in 2016, reaching their highest level for 800,000 years.

The Bonn Conference will feature a series of meetings and events, including a high-level segment on 15 and 16 November, which will be attended by Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, Minister of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development, as the head of the Monegasque delegation.

Throughout the conference, the Monegasque delegation, via the Environmental Integrity Group (EIG), a negotiating group of which Monaco is a member, will seek to maintain a high level of ambition in the discussions, particularly with respect to information transparency and climate change mitigation. The delegation will also seek to ensure that the decisive role of the oceans in mitigating and adapting to the impact of climate change is taken into account.

In this regard, it is worth noting that the Principality will host a session of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2019, during which the panel’s special report on oceans and the cryosphere will be approved.
