Lykke Friis is new minister for Climate and Energy. Connie Hedegaard is now minister for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009 and continues as incoming COP president.
A new Danish minister for Climate and Energy has been appointed as a consequence of the Danish government's choice of candidate for a position in EU Commission.
Lykke Friis, Ph.D. and former prorector at Copenhagen University is now Danish Minister for Climate and Energy. Connie Hedegaard, who is Denmark's EU commissioner candidate, has changed title to Minister for the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.
The new situation does not change anything about Connie Hedegaard's role during the upcoming UN climate change conference in Copenhagen in December. Connie Hedegaard will still be President of the conference.
