Climate and energy: GIZ at COP 23
From Fiji to Viet Nam, the impacts of climate change are there for all to see. In more than 100 countries, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is working to find solutions to this problem. One-third of our projects deals with climate change mitigation. We need to reduce emissions that are harmful to the climate, promote sustainable mobility and the use of green energy sources, adapt to the impacts of climate change and explore how the corresponding adaptation measures can be financed.
All of these issues are on the agenda at the 23rd UN Climate Change Conference (Conference of the Parties, COP23). From 6 to 17 November 2017, international decision-makers will be meeting in Bonn to translate the resolutions from the 2015 Paris Agreement into concrete climate protection measures. During the two-week conference, we will be presenting our work in the field of climate and energy at various events.
