Have you done A Pre-Climate Action Summit Yet?
Have you done a pre-climate action summit yet? Luckily for me, it’s a yes. Our government in partnership with other organizations gave us an opportunity to experience it before the real thing happens.
We were able to be taken through parts that our country and other developing countries have been tasked in this fight against Climate change.
According to the UN Secretary-General António Guterres, he urged leaders to bring concrete, realistic plans to enhance their nationally determined contributions by 2020, in line with reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 45 per cent over the next decade, and to net zero emissions by 2050 , in the coming Climate Action Summit on 23rd September in New York.
It was clear from our convention:
We are for growing trees and not only planting them
By ensuring we grow the right species and the right place. This includes investing in indigenous species, fruit trees, etc.
The tree should be able to stand the weather conditions of the places, we plant them. And hence have higher chances of surviving to maturity.
Climate adaptation and mitigation is very vital
As we take Climate Action seriously, adaptations and mitigations are very important. By adapting to climate change, we will be able to survive the consequences. While mitigation measures will help us fight back Climate change.
Peace is vital while fighting Climate Change
The Calamities that have been brought by climate change, has caused hunger, loss of lives, desertification, floods, among others. And these consequences have caused pain and division among humans.
Resources have become too scarce, so people are fighting for what has been left. Women and children are the most affected humans on this planet. In this fight, we are working together and not leaving anyone behind.
Our commitment to GHG emission reduction
This especially touches the developing countries that are still undergoing urbanization and industrialization. We are still catching up with the developed countries, but our emissions are supposed to be reduced.
The Paris Agreement allowed us to develop and have a plan on when to start reducing the emissions.
Insufficient funds and types of equipment needed to fight climate change
Developing countries are still financially handicapped, whereby most of their population are barely fighting to survive. We are barely living hand to mouth. Hence no funds needed to fight climate change.
This summit is expected to have all our solutions towards climate change. Responsibilities have been divided among nations, so that they can do a thorough job in getting concrete solutions.
