Climate Diplomacy – urging and supporting EU partners in climate action

Another clear political affirmation of prioritising climate action on the EU agenda came yesterday: foreign ministers restated the centrality of climate action and adopted conclusions on climate diplomacy and external policy.

The EU will be working to urge and support third countries, through all EU external policy instruments, to achieve the same climate objectives.

In this vein, the Council called on High Representative Josep Borrell, the Commission, and Member States to work jointly and urgently towards a strategic approach to Climate Diplomacy by June 2020.
