22nd December - Monaco has taken part in the closing session of the COP28 UN Climate Change Conference in Dubai. Monaco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, travelled to Dubai to take part in the high-level segment of the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28).
She was accompanied the Deputy Director of the Department of the Environment, together with Head of Section and Editor in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.
The measures that have been taken in Monaco to reduce greenhouse gas emissions were highlighted and the Prince’s Government’s determination to support developing countries to implement the Paris Agreement was reiterated.

The Minister also represented Monaco’s historic advocacy for the preservation of marine ecosystems and called for recognition of the important role of the ocean in the fight against climate change, given the intimate link between climate crises, the ocean and biodiversity.

This COP was an opportunity for Monaco to extend its support to several declarations and initiatives, on the links between climate and peace, and between climate change and health. The Principality also signed the Global Renewables and Energy Efficiency Pledge, in which it has committed, alongside more than 120 States, to triple global renewable energy capacity and double the rate of energy efficiency improvements between now and 2030. It also endorsed the Declaration on Sustainable Agriculture, and this despite a drop observed in funding for the adaptation of food systems.

Among the major achievements of this COP are the creation of implementation mechanisms for the loss and damage fund for vulnerable countries hit hard by the effects of climate change. States Parties also reached a consensus on the adoption of the first “global stocktake” review of the Paris Agreement. This landmark decision acknowledges progress made and sets out various directions forward to ensure the ongoing attainability of the Agreement’s objectives. One of the recommendations to which Monaco is committed is the development of renewable energies and energy efficiency. Another, unprecedented, outlines a “transition away from fossil fuels” by 2050.

15th  December - Monegasque legislation provides a means of compensating victims

The Prince’s Government is delighted that the National Council voted in favour of the law on 7 December 2023, which enables victims of sexual offences, crimes against children, domestic violence and other offences to obtain compensation from the State if the perpetrator is insolvent. The elected representatives in attendance voted unanimously in favour of this bill, proposed by the Government, which aims to strengthen the protection of victims and those most vulnerable in the Principality.

This work, led by the Chief Officer for Women's Rights and conducted by the Department of Legal Affairs and the Department of Justice, aims to prevent victims of crime from falling into financial distress on top of emotional trauma.

Thanks to the collaborative work carried out with the National Council and the commitment of its elected representatives, a bill has been drafted in the interests of victims.

In his speech, H.E. Mr Pierre Dartout, the Minister of State, welcomed this major step forward: "It is unacceptable that victims often waive their right to compensation after the trial rather than face their attacker again. The respect and protection of victims should always be the foundation of criminal justice policy". Lastly, he commended the high calibre of discussions between the National Council and the Government and thanked all those involved in reviewing the bill that brought this reform to fruition.

Monaco’s education system is based on the curricula used by the French national system, with some specific features of its own: a more intensive English-language programme taught from nursery school through to the final year of secondary; a “French as a foreign language” programme to facilitate the integration of non-French-speaking pupils; a programme that promotes reading and cultural education; teaching of the Monegasque language and the history of Monaco to promote the national culture; and a stronger sports component (physical education and swimming classes are part of the timetable for even the youngest pupils, well-developed facilities are available, specially adapted timetables can be arranged to accommodate sports training, etc.).

18th August - If you’re running out of ideas of how to keep the kids amused, then why not bring them to Monaco?

Currently, with Polar Mission exhibition, each visitor plays the role of a field reporter on a polar mission, armed with their entrance tickets that takes them from a press card and triggers content and information, throughout their visit. At the end of the tour, visitors are invited to hand over their report on the Poles, as a special opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings about these remote lands, and relate back what they have retained. How? By choosing a title, a cover design and their own photos as illustrations, just like a reporter. It’s an opportunity to create a souvenir of their expedition to these extreme territories and share it with their family and friends. Visitors can also get involved with the Oceanographic Institute and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, by actively supporting the actions carried out to protect the Poles, and in particular the creation of the new protected marine areas in the polar oceans. As an individual, each visitor can take action on a daily basis, contributing to the preservation of these remote territories. The ambassador of the exhibition Melanie Laurent reminds visitors that the future of the Poles is also ours, and that if your polar mission is coming to an end, it is in fact here and now, that it really begins.
