Commonwealth leaders to approve climate charter
The Commonwealth's pledges will focus on five core themes: climate-resilient agriculture for food security, soil & water conservation, green cover & biodiversity, climate-resilient livestock raising.
Commonwealth leaders are set to push for more climate action this week in Rwanda, ahead of the UN climate change summit in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, later this year.
Climate change would need the world's greatest political, social, & economic endeavour, Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland said in Kigali.
The group is concerned about climate change. Heatwaves, high temperatures, droughts, cyclones, floods, & increasing sea levels have affected most of its members.
Prince Charles, as ceremonial leader of the Commonwealth, is expected to advocate climate action.
This week, Commonwealth leaders will adopt the "Living Lands Charter" to address climate change, land degradation, & biodiversity loss.
"The Living Lands Charter shows our dedication." It helps us hold the global average temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius,” Scotland stated.
