PM calls for ‘unified mountain voice’ to address effects of climate change

KATHMANDU: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said that ‘a unified mountain voice’ is urgently needed to address the growing concern about the effects of climate change.

“I firmly believe that a unified mountain voice is urgently needed to address the growing concern about the effects of climate change on mountain communities and the ecosystem services they provide,” he said while addressing the Global Dialogue on Mountains, People and Climate here today.

The Prime Minister also pointed out the need of economic and technical cooperation to countries most affected by climate change impact.

Stating that climate change impact in mountains is unprecedented, he said, it is evident that occupying the front lines of the global climate crisis, mountainous countries are disproportionately burdened by the adverse effects of warming and called for collective resolve to address this pressing issue.
