This year, the Committee of the Regions will be joining, as observer, the EU delegation to the 20th Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP20 UNFCCC).
This year's COP UNFCCC in Lima, Peru, will be a decisive moment as countries start to unveil their contributions and prepare the draft global agreement.
As President of the Committee of the Regions representing the voice of European local and regional governments in the EU, Michel Lebrun will be present at the COP20. He will support the EU to take the lead on shared fight against climate change and stir up ambition among negotiating countries.
In doing so, he will share EU best practices with cities and regions of the world, to further raise the potential for a new level of ambition.
Michel Lebrun, president of the EU Committee of the Regions, will be accompanied by Annabelle Jaeger, rapporteur for our latest recommendation on climate.
