Assistant Minister for Climate Change and Energy, Jenny McAllister, has strengthened Australia’s relationships with key international counterparts and showcased Australia’s renewed climate leadership at the 14th Petersberg Climate Dialogue.

The 14th Petersberg Climate Dialogue was held in Berlin over May 2 and 3.

Ms McAllister said it was an important event to engage with ministers from major economies and our region to support a successful outcome at the annual UN climate conference (COP28) held in Dubai, December 2023.

During the three day visit, Ms McAllister participated in high-level political discussions on global energy transitions and adaptation action and co-facilitated discussions on new funding arrangements to address loss and damage arising from climate change impacts.

Ms McAllister said she was also looking forward to strengthening Australia’s relationships with key international counterparts and showcasing Australia’s renewed climate leadership, including the recent passage of the reforms to the Safeguard Mechanism.

While in Germany, Ms McAllister will also meet with senior German government and industry leaders to advance our cooperation on energy efficiency and hydrogen.

Ms McAllister said, “Australia’s participation in the Petersberg Climate Dialogue shows that under the Albanese Government we are once again a trusted partner on climate action.”

Since its inception in 2010, the annual Petersberg Climate Dialogue has facilitated the opportunity for ministers to hold dynamic and constructive exchanges on key climate and energy issues to support the delivery of strong outcomes at the annual, end of year UN international climate conferences.

The Dialogue is co-hosted by Germany and the incoming UNFCCC Conference of the Parties (COP) President, which for 2023 is the United Arab Emirates.
