WASHINGTON: Foreign Minister NP Saud has appealed to the developed countries to give developing countries a leading role in addressing the effects of climate change.
Addressing a program organized by Parliamentarians Network for a Fossil Fuel Free Future here on Sunday, he called for coordinated efforts in view of the seriousness of the situation and to create an action plan for the future generation.
Speaking at the program as a keynote speaker, in the capacity of the Chair of the Global Coordination Bureau of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs), Minister Saud talked about the procedural strategies for the displacement of fossil fuel.
On the occasion, Minister Saud said that developed countries should provide 100 billion USD to the Green Climate Fund as pledged and double it by 2025.
“We have been continuously urging the developed countries to increase the production of clean energy and reduce the consumption of fossil fuel. We call on our development partners to help increase the use of clean and renewable energy and transfer technology to LDCs.”
