Letter of appreciation from Minister Simonetta Sommaruga to Prof Benito Müller

A letter of appreciation has been received by Professor Benito Müller from Minister Simonetta Sommaruga, Switzerland, for his high level of engagement leading up to COP26 in Glasgow, in particular with regard to the conclusion of the issue of Common Time Frames for NDCs, which had been outstanding ever since the adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2015.

Minister Sommaruga and Minister Mujawamariya of Rwanda had been asked by COP26 President Alok Sharma to “consult with ministers on Common Time Frames for NDCs.” Read the Rt Hon Alok Sharma's speech here.

Sommaruga thanks Müller for his “tireless efforts […] instrumental in convening pertinent actors ready to work towards an ambitious outcome [which] would not have been possible without your support.”
