Taoiseach To Take Part In Paris Climate Talks

Taoiseach Enda Kenny will take part in a major climate change conference in Paris.

The COP 21 conference will focus on how to cut global carbon emissions.

Thousands of delegates from 195 countries, along with government representatives, UN officials and NGOs, will attend two weeks of climate talks in the French capital.

Delivering Ireland's National Statement, Mr Kenny will call for an agreement that limits global temperature increases and sends a 'strong signal' to all countries to transition to a low carbon future.

In addition, he will outline the policy framework introduced by the Government to tackle the spectrum of climate change issues.

The Taoiseach will also set out out Ireland's support for developing countries adapting to the effects of climate change and making the transition to low-carbon development.
