Architects of the Paris climate agreement urge leaders to prepare a similar deal for nature conservation ahead of COP15 in Montreal
The architects behind the making of the 2015 Paris Climate agreement are now demanding that the world leaders need to work on a similar deal for nature. This statement was issued by them on Wednesday, November 16, ahead of the upcoming COP15 biodiversity conference.
According to an article from Euronews, four of the people who helped make the Paris agreement released a signed statement. This includes Laurent Fabius, Manuel Pulgar-Vidal, Christiana Figueres and Laurence Tubiana. The statement said, “There is no pathway to limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius without action on protecting and restoring nature,” said a statement signed by Laurent Fabius, Manuel Pulgar-Vidal, Christiana Figueres and Laurence Tubiana. It further said, “COP15 will be an unprecedented opportunity to turn the tide on nature loss”.
The report also adds that as the COP27 summit on climate reaches its final days of conclusion, climate campaigners and governments representatives are now getting ready for COP15. The meeting, which is scheduled for next month in Montreal, had been postponed four times due to the COVID pandemic.
As part of the COP15 agenda, national delegations will make a deal to halt the degradation of global landscapes. It would also include deals to protect the diminishing global wildlife numbers.
