Jean Luc Van Klaveren was representing the Principality at the ministerial round table of “Blue Leaders” at the COP 25 conference which took place in Madrid and ended at the weekend.

In addition, the ambassador pointed out that the IPCC Report emphasized that the connection between biodiversity, oceans and climate should be at the top of the international environmental policy agenda and that nature-based solutions, such as Marine Protected Areas, deserved special attention.
