The industrialised and emerging countries have the largest contribution to global greenhouse gas emissions – but it is the people in the Global South, many of whom already suffer from extreme poverty, who are most affected by the consequences of climate change. Naturefriends International, therefore, calls for more climate justice at the World Climate Conference, which starts this weekend in Sharm El Sheikh: immediate, ambitious and binding climate protection measures as well as efficient support for the countries and people most affected by climate change.
At its Annual Conference in Lozio (Italy), Naturefriends International (NFI) calls on the European Union and its member states to immediately implement necessary measures for an energy self-sufficient, ecological, and social Europe. A rapid switch to renewable energies that is in line with nature conservation is the basis for achieving global climate goals and for ending dependence on the monopoly suppliers of fossil fuels.
