COP25: Pacific countries pushing for climate action in Madrid
Quoting Radio New Zealand – 2 December 2019
“Pacific countries will be trying to apply as much pressure as possible in the latest round of UN climate talks, says the director of the Cook Islands climate change office.
“The negotiations - known as COP25 in UN jargon - begin today in the Spanish capital, Madrid.
“Over two weeks, representatives of every country will thrash out progress towards the meeting the 2015 Paris climate accord.
“It comes amid of a wave of global youth-led fury, but also the US withdrawal, and more dire scientific reports on the state of the planet.
“One of the key priorities in Madrid would be to ensure the Paris target could not be eroded further.”
