UN seeks international solidarity to fight climate change
Delegates to the 17th Conference of Parties to the UN Climate Change Convention and the 7th Conference of Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol, in Durban have been urged to push for ‘preventive’ international solidarity to confront the environmental global challenges..
In a speech, the UN Independent Expert on Human Rights and International Solidarity, Virginia Dandan, urged ‘old and new polluters’ to take the lead in the climate change negotiations in Durban, South Africa.
“Will the inertia that has been ailing climate change negotiations finally break new ground?” she asked. “International solidarity should be preventive rather than simply reactive to the massive irreversible damage that has already been caused not only by natural disaster but as well, by man’s activities,”
“The world is calling for genuine international solidarity and multilateralism, and for its leaders to take a leap of faith in unison, and as one,” the expert said. (ANA)
