The British, German and French embassies joined up in more than 25 countries across the world yesterday to promote action on climate change.

It was part of the Climate Diplomacy Day, with events highlighting the economic benefits of successful climate projects.

The news comes as Energy Secretary Ed Davey unveiled the UK’s strategy for a global climate deal for next year’s climate change summit in Paris.

Events included the UK, German and French Heads of Mission visiting jointly-funded solar projects in Dhaka and public programmes in Bangkok, Hanoi, Melbourne and Singapore highlighting the wide ranging impacts of climate change using the UK Met Office’s recently launched map.

The UK, Germany and France have been working together in the field of climate foreign policy for a number of years.

“This cooperation includes not only efforts to support the international climate negotiations and conditions for a global climate agreement in 2015 but also to demonstrate climate policy in action through a range of projects overseas”, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) said.
