The Coalition of Finance Ministers for Climate Action met for its third sherpa meeting on November 18-19, at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development headquarters in London, United Kingdom.


The meeting sought to (1) set out member and institutional partner activities arranged by the Helsinki Principles under the Santiago Action Pan, (2) clarify work arrangements to facilitate effective and full participation of members and institutions, and (3) prepare for the COP25 in Madrid in December 2019, which would include the launch of the Action Plan, as well as the drafting of a joint ministerial declaration.
