On December 2, the 25th session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change opened in Madrid. The Russian delegation to the conference is led by Adviser to the President and Special Presidential Representative on Climate Issues Ruslan Edelgeriyev.
Participants in the conference are expected to finalise and approve Paris Agreement rules, primarily those designed to introduce market and non-market mechanisms for international cooperation in the field of sustainable development.
Participants in the summit will also review issues related to reporting and climate finance, including the creation and operation of the Adaptation Fund, as well as methodological and technical matters.
About 25,000 experts from governmental and non-governmental organisations, the academic and business communities, and international financial institutions are expected to take part in the conference.
