Environmental and climate policy are playing an increasingly important role in the offices and regional projects of the FES in Latin America. This year again, numerous representatives from important partner organisations of the Foundation will participate in the COP 27 in Sharm-El-Sheik, whom we would like to introduce briefly here. On the occasion of the International Day on Climate Change, we asked some of the participants about their expectations for the international climate conference.
