A crucial climate deal needed to the Earth's future
people climate march
The UN Climate Change Conference at the end of this year has an essential purpose: to achieve a legally-binding agreement on climate that can ensure a cut in emissions of greenhouse gases that will limit global temperature rise to less than 2°C above pre-industrial levels and avoid the worst consequences of climate change. The conference will be held in Paris 30 November to 11 December. WWF calls for an agreement that is equitable, with adequate financing to help especially developing countries with adaptation and mitigation, and above all which achieves a peak of emission in the next decade with sharp decline thereafter.
