Christian Aid’s International Climate Lead, Mohamed Adow has reacted to the Marrakech Action Proclamation by world leaders at the UN climate summit in Morocco with the following statements.
“It’s rare that so many countries unite to make a public declaration on any policy subject. This demonstrates just what a global consensus there now is around climate change and underlines the determination of world leaders that they will not let the election of Donald Trump hijack the important work being done to secure the safe future of our planet.
It is fitting that this call is made on African soil where many of these vulnerable people call home.
“This call is an act of solidarity with the people of the world most affected by climate change. It is fitting that this call is made on African soil where many of these vulnerable people call home.
“In what feels like a divided and fragile world, it’s encouraging to see there is unison over one of our most existential threats. Like the aliens in the movie Independence Day, climate change has the power to bring the world together to fight our common enemy.”
