On the final day of the Tianjin meeting, UNFCCC Executive Secretary, Christiana Figueres, and Mexican Foreign Minister, Patricia Espinosa, gave a joint press conference where they stated that governments have made progress in defining what can be achieved at the UN Climate Change Conference in Cancun.


Ms Figueres pointed out the critical importance of "turning dry texts into a set of keys that unlock a new level of climate action - among rich and poor, business and consumers, governments and citizens."

Minister Espinosa said that "the outcomes of this year's conferences can truly be the start of a new era of cooperative global climate action." She added that Cancun can and should be a very significant step forward.
