They spoke on the sidelines of the ongoing 24th Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Katowice, Poland. The conference is tasked with finalizing the implementation rules set by the 2015 Paris climate conference, which aims to keep global warming at no greater than 2 C above preindustrial levels.
