Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Vivian Balakrishnan will attend the 18th Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate in Mexico on Thursday and Friday.

The forum is a lead-up to an annual climate change conference which will be held in December in Peru.

Initiated in 2009, the Major Economies Forum brings together 17 major economies to discuss issues relating to the international climate change negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change.
