The government of Germany and the UN  co-signed the bilateral agreement which forms the legal basis for organizing and hosting the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn this year (COP23, 6 – 17 November).

The conference, which is organized by the Bonn-based UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and is presided over by Fiji, is organizationally and logistically supported by the German government, with further support from the state of North-Rhine-Westphalia and the City of Bonn.

When signing the agreement on behalf of Germany, State Secretary Walter Lindner of the German Foreign Office stressed the geopolitical significance of climate action in a world in which the impacts of climate change and the urgency to act are becoming increasingly apparent.
