COP24 Katowice

Meetings of Vice-Minister Kurtyka with Polish Non Party Stakeholders

Preparations, observations and opportunities for cooperation and support during the COP24 Climate Summit in Katowice were the topic of the meeting of Vice-Minister of Environment Michał Kurtyka with representatives of non-governmental organisations. The meeting took place on the 8th of November 2018 in Warsaw.

During the meeting, Vice-Minister Michał Kurtyka highlighted the importance of the role of social observers represented by Non Party Stakeholders at COP summits.

“Dialogue is the only way to break down barriers between different stakeholders and work together to reach an agreement that satisfies everyone – dialogue without representatives of society is simply incomplete. This is why I am glad to see the growing involvement of civil society in global efforts aimed at protecting the planet. Only a joint effort by governments and summit observers will make it possible to take effective action to curb climate change,” he said.

The discussion concerned, among numerous topics, the progress of work related to the preparation of a package implementing the Paris Agreement. The participants of the meeting were also interested in initiatives proposed by the Polish Presidency related to electromobility and fair transformation. They also expressed their hope that the summit in Katowice will be a success and declared their support.
