Environment minister Leo Brincat insisted that nothing must be allowed to get in the way of the COP21 agreement, a major UN deal to tackle climate change that was adopted by 195 countries in December.

Brincat was speaking during a high-level climate change meeting at the Dutch embassy in Paris, organised by the French government and the Dutch presidency of the EU council.

The meeting was spearheaded by Dutch environment minister Sharon Dijksma and French environment minister Segolene Royal.

In a brief statement, Brincat said that the meeting focused on the private sector’s role in tackling climate change and on an upcoming document that EU environment ministers will draft on the implementation of the COP21.
