Pre-conference takes place in Milan
Under the Paris Agreement, each country can now decide for itself when it wants to formulate its climate goals. There are still no implementation rules for the respective duration of the climate targets. The communication goes on to say: Without such regulations, countries would not be able to communicate their next climate goals in 2025 in a uniform way.
The pre-conference will take place in Milan from 30 September to 2 October, with Somaruga presenting proposals together with Rwanda’s Environment Minister Jean d’Arc Mujawamaria. They share the mandate.
