German environment minister Barbara Hendricks will travel to Washington from May 15-17 to meet her US counterpart, EPA head Scott Pruit, and talk about climate and environmental protection, the Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMUB) said in a press release. Hendricks said she wanted to “get in touch with the new administration” and would “especially urge the US to remain a party to the Paris Climate Agreement”. Hendricks will also meet with California’s governor Jerry Brown to discuss the growing importance of subnational entities like federal states, cities and regions in advancing climate protection, according to the ministry.
