Prince Albert has filed the Principality’s formal ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement, sometimes known as COP21, at the United Nations headquarters in New York.
Later, the Prince met Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the UN, for a bilateral meeting.
The meeting allowed “a fruitful exchange not only on climate change but on the evolution of certain projects and the preparation of COP22”, which starts in Marrakesh on November 7, Prince Albert said. Monaco is committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.
Prince Albert and Princess Charlene were in New York to attend the annual Princess Grace Awards.
