Ethiopia and its Climate partners getting ready for COP21
Mrs Brigitte Collet, Ambassador of France to Ethiopia, invited Dr Shiferaw Teklemariam, Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change of Ethiopia, to a working dinner with climate partners, on November 17, 2015.
It was the occasion to exchange on the preparation of the Paris Climate Conference, which will be held from November 30 to December 11, 2015, in France.
This working dinner was organized in the framework of the Climate Partnership with Ethiopia, launched in 2011 by the United Kingdom and Norway, in view to promote Ethiopia’s green growth strategy as an example for Africa. France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, the European Union and the United States have joined this partnership later.
The Ethiopian Minister, who attended the Pre-COP meeting organized in Paris earlier in November, presented its main results, which he considered very positive.
All the Climate Partners thanked Ethiopia for its commitment in the fight against climate disruption.
