Ministers of the Environment from across the region will address the challenges and opportunities of tackling climate change, the links between global competitiveness and environmental policies at the end of April.
Heading to Paris, ministers from the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) countries, their counterparts from Chile, Estonia, Israel, Russia and Slovenia, and ministers from Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, and South Africa will discuss ways they can work together to achieve common environmental goals. Reducing pollution, conserving nature and producing less carbon is on the agenda.
The Ministers will base their discussion on the recently published policy solutions for climate change, biodiversity loss, water scarcity and health impacts of pollutions. The Environment Minister of Italy, with the Environment Ministers of Denmark, Japan, Mexico, Portugal and the US will chair the discussions.
Unlike at Bali, we hope that Israel’s Gideon Ezra does make it to the event, and not send a representative. It is Pessach, however.
