Clean Energy Wire

Germany will raise its contribution to the climate change adaptation fund by 50 million euros, the environment ministry announced on the opening day of the COP23 climate summit in Bonn. The development cooperation ministry pledged an additional 50 million euros to the Least Developed Countries Fund. Environment minister Barbara Hendricks said this should be a “first impulse for a constructive negotiating atmosphere”.

CLEW will publish an account of the first day of COP23 this afternoon.
