Manuel Vicente who is attending the event on behalf of president José Eduardo dos Santos is joining about 150 statesmen who have confirmed participation in the event officially known as Conference of the Parties (COP21) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Changes.
Besides the UN secretary general, Ban Ki Moon, the event is being attended by the heads of State of USA, Russia, Brazil, Iran, India and China.
The Summit is expected to strike a new world deal on climate, seeking to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases in 2020-2050, and prevent temperature to reach the global average to overcome (2ºC).
According to the agenda, the meeting will analyse the problematic of mitigation, adaptation, transfer of technologies and mobilisation of funds to handle climate changes.
Diplomats in Paris say the meeting is also an opportunity for participants to reinforce partnership towards peace and security, combat of terrorism and development.
Angola backs the stand of the Least Advanced Countries that defends that the Paris Accord must include the goal of limiting the rise in temperature below 1,5ºC.
Angola’s stand includes aspects linked to creation of long term goals, concrete adaptation actions, clear financial commitments, five-year evolutive commitments, action mitigation strategies, loss and damage mechanisms and training of personnel.
