Four things UN Chief wants world leaders to know at major climate conference

04.12.2018 19:11 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) The COP24, a two-week 24th Climate Change Conference held within Katowice (Poland) of the parties to the UN Climate Change Convention (UNFCCC), technically started on Sunday, but Monday saw the high-level grand opening, UN Radio reports. As to the report, it marks the deadline for the 197 parties that signed the Convention, to adopt guidelines for the implementation of the historic 2015 Paris Agreement. As to the report, within the Conference grand opening on Monday, UN Secretary-General António Guterres told over 150 world leaders gathered for climate action that «we are within deep trouble» and asked decision-makers to focus on four key things. First, he told that the world needs more action and more ambition, the climate change is already «a matter of life and death» for many people, nations and countries of the world, and that the science is telling us we need to move faster within our fight against it. Second, Guterres admitted it is necessary to finalise the guidelines for the Paris agreement implementation. «We need a unifying implementation vision that sets out clear rules, inspires action and promotes raised ambition, based on the principle of equity and common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities, in light of different national circumstances,» he said. Third, he accentuated the need to improve the funding of the climate actions. «We need concerted resource mobilization and investment to successfully combat climate change,» the Secretary-General told, noting that three quarters of the infrastructure needed by 2050 for climate action still remains to be built. Fourth, he reminded that the climate actions must have an influence on social and economic sphere. ’ «All too often, climate action is seen as a burden,» Guterres stressed. He explained that «decisive climate action today is our chance to right our ship and set a course for a better future for all». Within his speech, the UN chief commended cities, regions, civil society and the business community around the world for moving ahead. «What we need is political more will and more far-sighted leadership. This is the challenge on which this generation leaders will be judged,» he emphasized.
