Key aspects of diplomatic relations

On 11 November 2021, Switzerland and Dominica signed an agreement on international emissions offsetting in connection with the Paris Climate Accords. The agreement establishes a framework allowing Switzerland to support climate protection projects in Dominica in order to contribute more to global emission reductions than it would be able to via domestic measures alone.
