▼NGO network urges G7 for more solid actions on curbing climate change
An environmental protection body has called on Group of Seven (G7) countries to take more solid actions on curbing climate change, according to material obtained here Friday at the on-going G7 Ise-Shima Summit.
G7 leaders should take up climate and energy as top agenda items and commit to lead in implementing the Paris Agreement, said the document released by Climate Action Network (CAN), a worldwide network of over 950 NGOs working to promote governmental and individual action to curb climate change.
The environmental body advocates that G7 leaders should agree on ambitious targets and take actions for building on agreed pledges so as to lead the global transformation toward renewable energy.
In order to operationalize its long-term vision, the G7 must submit and implement the pathways that can achieve long-term low greenhouse gas emissions with ambitious policy packages, the CAN document said.
The environmental protection body also called on the G7 countries to scale up financial contribution to developing nations on environmental protection purposes.
It said that climate finance is a crucial part for developing countries to deliver actions to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Low carbon development plans and actions pledged by the developing countries in Paris require a massive increase of support on technology and public finance from rich nations such as G7 members.
