  • Environment minister John Cortes represented British Overseas Territories in the UK delegation

Environment minister John Cortes attended the 25th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties in Madrid recently, not only to represent the Rock but as Political Lead of the UK Overseas Territories, representing their governments in the UK delegation.

With housing minister Steven Linares, he gave a presentation on the Territories and held several meetings. Gibraltar is particularly keen to progress a climate change trading initiative.
