 BONN, Germany,  June 16 2022 –  The MKAI Team is well represented at the recently concluded United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Bonn, Germany.

MKAI Executive Chair Richard Foster-Fletcher, together with Innovation Director Dr. Odilia Coi, attended the said conference which lasted for two weeks where there has reportedly been a gruelling amount of work and decision-making processes in preparation for  UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Sharm el-Sheikh in November.

“The conversations in Bonn illustrated that more work and agreements are needed to close the funding gap for the countries most impacted by climate change. Personally, it strengthened my resolve for MKAI to move faster and more purposely in leveraging the technologies that can address this challenge.” Foster-Fletcher remarked.                      

The UN’s Bonn Climate Change Conference has been a chance for all parties involved to meet after the adoption of COP26 last year. At this conference, governments agreed upon remedial measures that will help them fully implement the Paris Agreement into their national programs and policies as well as understand its effect on different sectors.

Foster-Fletcher and Coi are also set to give presentations on two panels at the Latin America and the Caribbean Climate Week 2022 which will be hosted by Dominican Republic next week.
