Canada, EU, China to co-host Sept climate meeting


Environmental ministers representing Canada, China and the European Union will co-host a meeting in Montreal later this month to move forward with the implementation of the Paris climate change agreement.
“This meeting brings together major economies and key climate actors to advance the implementation of the Paris Agreement and demonstrate continued commitment to global action on climate change,” she said in a statement.
The meeting follows US President Donald Trump’s announcement in June that the United States would abandon the painstakingly-negotiated 2015 global pact.
The accord commits signatories to efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming, which is blamed for melting ice caps and glaciers, rising sea levels and more violent weather events.—Agencies
