Government to attend climate summit in Paris

On Tuesday 12 December, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven and Minister for International Development Cooperation and Climate and Deputy Prime Minister Isabella Lövin will attend the international climate summit ‘One Planet Summit’ in Paris.

The One Planet Summit is being organised in light of the fact that it is now two years since the historic climate agreement was adopted in Paris in 2015. The aim of the Summit is to raise the level of ambition regarding climate change and implementation of the Paris Agreement.

Prior to the Summit, Mr Löfven will attend a lunch with invited heads of state and government at the Elysée Palace.

Earlier in the day, Ms Lövin will meet France's Minister for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition Nicolas Hulot and take part in a high-level panel on the theme 'Strengthening Policies for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition'.

Minister for Financial Markets and Consumer Affairs Per Bolund will attend the high-level Climate Finance Day conference on 11 December.

Mr Löfven and Ms Lövin will hold a press conference at the residence of the Swedish Ambassador in Paris on 12 December at 09.30.
