In recent days, the Minister of the Environment and Water of Ecuador, Paulo Proaño, held a meeting with his counterpart from the United Kingdom, Zac Goldsmith, to discuss various issues of common interest, with a eye on the negotiations on climate change to be held in COP26 to be held in Glasgow, United Kingdom, from November 1 to 12, 2021.
According to the Ministry of Environment, technical meetings will be held from mid-2021 to develop the main points of interest of Ecuador in terms of climate change and consolidate them in the “Country Position” for COP26.
This process includes a technical preparation phase and a political validation phase in the Plenary of the Inter-Institutional Committee on Climate Change (CICC) prior to COP26.
“Our main commitment is to contribute comprehensively to the fight against climate change, through different actions, projects and programs – especially those that also allow us to protect different ecosystems and promote sustainable development,” said Proaño.
Among other topics, the current situation of the Galapagos Marine Reserve was addressed. The Director of the Galapagos Conservation Trust, Sharon Johnson, participated in this space, highlighting the importance of this area in the world ecosystem.
