International Climate - resources
Tackling greenhouse gas emissions to prevent dangerous climate change is one of the most pressing challenges facing humanity.
Climate change is not only an environmental challenge; it's fundamentally about:
- Ending poverty
- Environmental and social justice.
International action on climate change will only work practically and politically if it's fair and gives due regard to the priorities of developing countries pursuing sustainable development and poverty reduction.
These are the basic principles of climate justice.
Did you know?
- Rich developed countries make up just 15% of the world's population, but are historically responsible for 75% of global CO2 emissions.
- The poorest 10% of the world's people have contributed less than 1% of these emissions.
Friends of the Earth is campaigning for a strong and just climate agreement at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
