On the occasion of World Environment Day, France reaffirms its commitment to protecting the planet.
In particular, France is engaged in preparations for the 2015 Paris Climate Conference – an historic opportunity to reach an ambitious universal agreement on combating climate change.
France is playing a leading role in international cooperation on biodiversity, marine environments, water, resource management and desertification. It welcomes the United Nations Environment Assembly taking place in Nairobi on June 23-27, which represents a key step toward strengthening international governance in this area.
France is actively participating in international negotiations on Sustainable Development Goals, which will mark a fundamental shift toward establishing a more sustainable development model.
