Environmental Protection Minister Tamar Zandberg will head to Paris next week to attend a meeting of OECD countries on tackling climate change, says the ministry.

The meeting of the OECD council at ministerial level, which begins October 5, is spearheaded by US climate change envoy John Kerry and titled “Shared Values: Building a Green and Inclusive Future.”

Zandberg will present Israel’s actions and plans to increase its involvement in tackling environmental concerns on a global scale, with an emphasis on climate innovation and green technologies, says the ministry.

The minister will participate in a panel on October 6 titled “Building a green future — towards a carbon-neutral economy.”
