This Friday, Environment Ministers will meet to discuss to prepare the EU position for the COP21 Summit. According to draft versions of the conclusions, ministers will express their concern about the lack of progress on the negotiations so far. However, also within the EU there is still disagreement on the EU ambitions, with Member States divided over the possiblity to increase or decrease EU targets according to the COP21 outcomes.
France last week already expressed its concern about the COP21 preparations. Hollande stated that too little progress has been made, and that there was a «serious risk» that the COP21 could fail.
