Participation of Mr. Fuat Küçükaydın, PABSEC Deputy Secretary General in charge of Administrative and Financial Matter, in the Parliamentary Meeting on the occasion of the UN Climate Change Conference, Bonn, Germany, 12 November 2017
Upon the invitation of the Inter-parliamentary Union (IPU), Mr. Fuat Küçükaydın, PABSEC Deputy Secretary General in charge of Administrative and Financial Matter, participated in the Parliamentary Meeting on the occasion of the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany, on 12 November 2017.
The aim of this Conference was to accelerate the transformation to sustainable, resilient and climate-safe development.
In the course of the meeting, parliamentarians, UN officials and experts discussed the issues concerning the global warming and outlined that it is one of the most serious challenges to sustainable development, thus is affecting all the countries. The participants noted with concern the fact that, for three years in a row, the global average temperatures have been the highest on record and stressed the fact that large parts of the world are already suffering massively from the impacts of the global warming, in the form of extreme weather events such as floods, droughts and hurricanes.
The interventions and observations of the experts outlined that the climate change and its impact represent threat for humanity. It was stressed that the Paris Agreement is an agenda for transformation in the real economy and the financial industry and it therefore represents a milestone in the climate protection. The participants also welcomed the fact that the international community reaffirmed its commitment to mobilise around US$ 100 billion per year by 2020 to support international protection measures.
This conference further clarified the enabling frameworks that will make the agreement operational and the needed support for all nations to achieve their climate change goals.
The PABSEC has always emphasized on the issues of energy efficiency, green energy, environmental protection and green investments and adopted several Reports and Recommendations on these subjects.
