Therefore, GERES has developed the innovative principle of climate solidarity. It combines two complementary and inseparable approaches :
- The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the North.
- Support for populations in the South faced with climate change.
According to CO2Solidaire, carbon compensation must be included in this principle in order for it to be fully consistent and to go beyond a “simple” environmental dimension.
GERES’ approach to climate solidarity consists in combining all aspects of the fight against climate change, starting with the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the North and promoting sustainable development solutions in countries of the South.
