Opinion article of the Climate and Development Committe of Coordination SUD – March 2014.
Do climate events really have to catch up with us before we finally become aware of the scale of the threats we face and the urgent need for action?
That’s the fear of the NGO members of the Climate and Development Committee of Coordination Sud which has called, in its opinion column “Climate change, a challenge for our century”, for extensive citizen mobilization to spur the world powers into making a strong political commitment.
France must demonstrate leadership by encouraging the European Union to adopt a much more ambitious energy and climate policy. GERES is leading the Climate and Development Committee until 2015 and calling for this mobilization.
