Taiwan achieves realistic participation in U.N. climate conference: EPA

Paris, Nov. 19 (CNA) Taiwan had achieved realistic participation in the just-concluded United Nations climate conference, holding talks with over 35 countries on global climate issues even though it is not a U.N. member, an Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) official said Saturday.

Exchanges with other countries during the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP22 in Marrakech, Morocco, had been smooth and free from Bejing's intervention, Chien Huei-chen, executive director of EPA's Office of Greenhouse Gas Reduction Management, told CNA.

Chien said 12 of Taiwan's diplomatic allies also spoke out for the country during the conference, in which Taiwan joined many activities on the sidelines.

"We participated in the event through a 'technical approach,'" said Chien, adding that the results were more fruitful than previously thought.

As to the talks with some 35 countries, they had generated concrete and sustainable measures, Chien said.

They included a joint-calculation mechanism for carbon dioxide emissions that could be verified by third parties, she said.

In addition, the island's state-run Taiwan Power Co., oil refiner CPC Corp., and China Steel Corp. had participated in more activities at this conference than in previous years, which Chien thinks could improve their ability to adapt to climate change. (Courtesy of CNA)
