    Today, on November 6, Bonn, Germany, has become the venue for the United Nations Climate Change Conference. The Ukrainian official delegation led by Ostap Semerak, Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources, authorized by the President of Ukraine to take part in negotiations and approval of decisions of the United Nations Conference, also participates in the conference, which will last until November 17. Within the framework of the event there will be held the twenty-third session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the 13th session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol and the second part of the first session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement.

    In particular, this year, delegates should pay close attention to plans for implementing the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, signed in December of 2015 in Paris, France. Then, by supporting the UN initiative, joining the agreement 195 nations assumed commitment to combat climate change and unleash actions and investment towards a low carbon, resilient and sustainable futures. The universal agreement’s main aim was to keep a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius and to drive efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

    The Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron are also to join this year's International Climate Change Conference.
