Bennett to Fiji for climate talks ahead of Bonn

Climate Change Minister Paula Bennett will travel to Nadi today to join leaders and ministers at ministerial talks ahead of the 23rd Conference of the Parties – COP23 – in Bonn, Germany in November.

Mrs Bennett will be accompanied by Dr Megan Woods, Labour’s Spokesperson for Climate Change Issues.

“The talks lay important groundwork for the COP through a frank exchange of views amongst leaders on key political questions,” Mrs Bennett said.

“The Nadi pre-COP is about building political consensus on how to operationalise the Paris Agreement and increase climate ambition. New Zealand is supporting Fiji’s Presidency of COP23 – it is a unique opportunity for the Pacific to demonstrate its contribution to tackling climate.”

Mrs Bennett will deliver New Zealand’s opening statement on Tuesday.
