Ministers from the Philippines will be joining some 200 contemporaries in Bonn, Germany, from April 9 to 11, for talks on environment and climate change.
The talks will follow up to the16th Conference of Parties, which will be lead by the United Nations in Mexico in December this year, with a goal to seek a new "global treaty" to slow down the fast changing climate.
A delegation of ministers from the Philippines, led by Heherson Alvarez, who is the Presidential Adviser on Global Warming and Climate Change, and also the Vice Chairman of the Climate Change Commission, flew to Germany to attend the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) meeting, to discuss the apparent bad effects stemming from climate change.
Alvarez, talking about the conference in Germany, said, "This will be the first conference after the Copenhagen Accord in December last year at the 15th Conference of Parties. We will again negotiate on behalf of the Philippines for further commitments of Annex- I developing countries".
The Philippines is the 192nd member to join the UNFCCC.
