Interview: Green MEP Bas Eickhout on COP25 and how parliament is 'getting its act together' on climate action

At the same time, EU negotiators will be in Madrid for the 25th conference of parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change – the second to last before the Paris Agreement enters its implementation phase in a little over a year.
