Kathmandu, December 9
Nepal will draw the attention of the 25th conference of parties (COP25) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to direct negative impacts of global warming seen in the rapid melting of snow in the Himalayas.
Minister for Forests and Environment, Shakti Bahadur Basnet, said this while talking to journalists at Tribhuvan International Airport on Sunday night before leaving for Madrid, the capital of Spain, for participating in the event. He is leading the Nepali delegation to the COP25. Basnet is scheduled to address the special session of COP25 on Wednesday.
Nepal would also lobby for providing the Green Climate Fund that the poor and highly affected countries like Nepal are entitled to get as compensation from the developed countries that are releasing a big amount of carbon into the atmosphere, he said.
Minister Basnet and the Nepali delegation will return home on December 15.
