Jochen Flasbarth, state secretary in the environment ministry, met Fiji’s Prime Minister Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama to discuss details of the COP23, which will focus on defining the Paris Agreement’s rules and standards, as well as on accommodating the interests of island nations that are especially vulnerable to climate change, the BMUB said. COP23 is going to be held in Bonn but will be presided over by the Pacific island country.
