BONN, GERMANY – The UK should make a “sensible and pragmatic” decision to continue working with the EU on global climate policy after Brexit or risk being side-lined at the international talks, a former UK negotiator has told DeSmog UK.

At the international climate negotiations in Bonn taking place this week, the UK is coordinating with the EU’s 27 other member states to speak as one voice during the negotiation process.

But with Brexit due to come into effect in March 2019, the UK could withdraw from the EU grouping of countries – known in negotiation jargon as a bloc – in future talks.
