The 23rd Conference of the Parties (COP23) takes place under the presidency of Fiji. Much of the focus will be on the interests of small island states, which are strongly affected by climate change. Adapting to climate change and resilience against global warming are some of the most important themes of the conference. The BMZ plays a crucial role, contributing ideas for sustainable solutions – because climate change and development are inextricably linked.

To mark the 23rd Climate Change Conference, German electro-pop musician Bernadette Hengst (www.lahengst.com) has composed the song “I’m an Island”. She was asked to do this by the festival Save the World/Theater Bonn. The song is a declaration of love to our planet and an appeal for more solidarity and joint action against climate change. “I’m an Island” – the song of the Climate Change Conference.
