Media release from the Climate Change Minister
The Government is inviting input as it sets the priorities for New Zealand at international climate change negotiations.
At Paris in 2015, 174 countries, plus the European Union, committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit global temperature rise this Century to well below 2 degrees Celsius.
At the end of this year (2-14 December), international negotiators meet in Katowice, Poland, for the 24th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP24) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
The purpose of COP24 is to work out the guidelines for how countries work together to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.
From today, New Zealanders are invited to have their say on what they think New Zealand’s stance on those guidelines should be.
