COP23 in Bonn, Germany: The COP of Action

  • The 23nd Session of the Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP23) will be held in Bonn, Germany, November 6 to 17, 2017
  • “I intend to act as COP President on behalf of all 7.5 billion people on the planet. But I bring a particular perspective to these negotiations on behalf of some of those who are most vulnerable to the effects of climate change - Pacific Islanders and the residents of other SIDS countries and low-lying areas of the world. Our concerns are the concerns of the entire world, given the scale of this crisis.”- Incoming COP 23 President Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama of Fiji
  • "We have a [renewable energy] target of 175 GW by 2022 and we hope to have 40 per cent of our total contribution in energy through non-fossil sources by 2030. We are advancing quite well and right now, we have already got up to 52 GW. In areas like smart grids and sustainable bio fuels, we are progressing. In this meeting, we were the only country that could produce an action plan and distribute it to them."- Environment Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan
