Petersberg Climate Dialogue VI
"Making the Paris Agreement a reality" [link]
4 to 5 July 2016 in Berlin, Germany
again the central talks between the "summits" getting the parties into a circle. I like the format, feel that this is more F2F than all this U - GA where little dialogue and Q&As are possible, and definitely such a place, improving the formats could be really doing a difference.
We just had the opening presse conference and I will try to report, even when my focus is now towards 2030 and the UN High Level talks next week and ongoing....
So please come back ! and meanwhile check #bmub30
Federal Environment Minister Barbara Hendricks is hosting the seventh Petersberg Climate Dialogue together with the Moroccan foreign minister and incoming President of the next UN Climate Change Conference, Salaheddine Mezouar. Since 2010, the annual dialogue has provided the opportunity for countries to engage in an informal exchange of experiences on international climate policy.
This year, the meeting will be attended by representatives from 35 countries and is particularly significant. With the adoption of the historic Paris Agreement in December last year, the international community made a commitment to ambitious climate action measures so as to limit global warming to well below under 2 degrees Celsius in the long term. Extensive progress was also made on issues such as adaptation to the consequences of climate change and climate finance.
