Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Geographically each of us are experiencing the effects in different ways, whether it be increased temperatures, forest fires, droughts or flooding to name but a few. it can also have a negative effect on biodiversity, health and food1. There is no disputing that despite generating the lowest emission that developing countries are being hit the hardest1.
It's time to take action: together it's more powerful
Humans and human induced activities have led to an increase in Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHGs), which in turn triggered a need for action and in 20152, at COP21, 195 parties adopted the Paris Agreement3. The Paris Agreement aims to “keep global temperature increase ‘well below’ 2°C”, but also to “pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5°C”. But, as things stand, the world is not on track to meet this target.
In order to achieve the objective set out by the Paris Agreement, we need drastic change in the way our local and global economies operate. We believe this can be achieved by aligning policies and strategies with carbon reduction goals.
