Commit More To Climate Financing, Emission Cuts, Jonathan Tells World Leaders

Former President Dr. Goodluck Jonathan has tasked world leaders to be more committed to climate financing and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in order to arrest the damaging effect of climate change.

He further asked leaders of developed economies to provide sustained technical and financial support to aid mitigation and adaptation efforts in developing countries as a means of saving the earth from rising temperatures due to global warming.

According to a statement by his media adviser, Ikechukwu Eze, the former President stated this on Thursday at the opening ceremony of the 30th National Conference and Annual General Meeting of the Nigerian Environmental Society (NES), held in Uyo Akwa Ibom State.

Commending the World Leaders for some of the decisions reached at the just-ended Conference Of The Parties (COP26) on climate change in Glasgow, Scotland, Jonathan urged leaders of developed countries to endeavor to meet their commitments in funding climate change control efforts.

He said: “We are all aware that the highly favoured clean and renewable energy is an expensive option, especially at inception and requires huge resources and technology.

It will only be meaningful and beneficial to developing nations, if world leaders show more commitment in walking the talk in climate financing.

This view was echoed by many leaders of developing nations at the COP26 Summit, particularly our President who presented a case for sustained technical and financial support to developing countries to enhance the attainment of national and global climate change goals.
