On the 9th of June 2015, Segolene Royal, French Minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development
and Energy, informed the RainGain partners about the importance that she attributes to ‘the
development of public policies based on sound science’ and that she supports the RainGain Conference by granting the COP21 label.
This grant confirms that the RainGain Conference and the French radar inauguration are an important step on the road to COP21, the 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21/CMP11). COP21, otherwise known as ‘Paris 2015’, will be held at le Bourget, in Paris, from November 30th to December 11th and it will be presided by France.
