Foreign Affairs Minister inaugurates the Chile Pavilion at COP28 and presents its Turquoise Foreign Policy
In the context of the COP28 being held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alberto van Klaveren, inaugurated the Chile Pavilion, a space that represents our country and where various activities will be developed, with the aim of focusing the discussion on the need to advance in the care of the environment and the fight against the climate crisis.
At the inauguration, the minister presented Chile's Turquoise Foreign Policy, which reaffirms one of the pillars of our country's foreign policy, through the search for opportunities and solutions to address the triple planetary emergency associated with climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution.
During the activity, the Minister stated that "through our Turquoise Foreign Policy, we want to lead and coordinate our action with an integrating approach, to obtain more and better results throughout the development of the international environmental agenda".
Chile's pavilion is located in the Blue Zone of COP28 and has four main areas: energy transition, nature-based solutions, green finance, and cryosphere and Antarctica. It is a space that is open to national delegates participating in the COP, both from government, NGOs, businesses and civil society, seeking to be a meeting point and a promotion of Chilean initiatives to address the climate crisis.
Meanwhile, Minister van Klaveren attended the High-Level Event on Mitigation, which seeks to identify gaps in climate action, as well as to join efforts to chart a better path to accelerate climate action.
Afterwards, the Minister participated in the Summit of G77 leaders and China, which was chaired by the President of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel. On the occasion, the attendees presented ideas and positions seeking to reach concrete agreements on the climate crisis.
At the end of the day at COP28, the Minister attended the celebration of the United Arab Emirates Day.
