UN Climate Statement / 31 Oct, 2019
Chile Receives Offer from Spain to Hold COP25 in Madrid from 2 to 13 December 2019

Statement by UN Climate Change Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa

Following yesterday’s announcement, the Government of Chile, as incoming Presidency, has informed me that they received a generous offer of support from the Government of Spain to hold the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP25) in Madrid on the same dates as originally planned.

We are hopeful that the COP Bureau can consider this proposed solution as soon as possible.

It is encouraging to see countries working together in the spirit of multilateralism to address climate change, the biggest challenge facing this and future generations.
