Will the Polish Presidency Heed the Call?

3 December 2018


ECO welcomes the call to enhanced action just issued by four former COP presidents (Laurent Fabius, President of COP21, Frank Bainimarama, President of COP23, Salaheddine Mezouar, President of COP22, and Manuel Pulgar Vidal, President of COP20).

They rightly note that “the world is at a crossroads and decisive action in the next two years will be crucial” and that “we require deep transformations of our economies and societies to build a better world for all.” They call for all of us in Katowice to “send an unequivocal message…for enhanced ambition by 2020 that puts the world on a trajectory compatible with the objectives of the Paris Agreement.”

ECO strongly hopes that delegates, ministers, heads of state — as well as the current Polish presidency –will heed this call over the next fourteen days, and give us the bold action the world so desperately needs.
