President Tsai Ing-wen wrote on her Facebook page Tuesday that Taiwan has the ability and willingness to help combat climate change, amid an ongoing climate conference being held in Poland.

The 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), or COP24, is being held in Katowice, Poland from December 2-14. The UNFCCC is an international treaty aimed at stabilising the concentration of greenhouse gases and preventing them interfering with the global climate system.

Echoing a campaign by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) spotlighting the nation’s strengths as a global partner in combating climate change and promoting sustainable development, President Tsai said Taiwan has the ability and desire to participate in the UNFCCC.

“To our friends at the international venue, Taiwan attaches great importance to the issue of climate change, and it is willing to work with everyone to combat the challenges,” she said.
