Cuba calls for real political will in the face of climate crisis

Havana, Nov 6 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez called on Saturday to address the current climate crisis at the Climate Convention (COP26), held in the Scottish city of Glasgow, with real political will.

At the COP26 negociations, developed countries are trying to rewrite the Climate Change Convention and impose selective and biased approaches, while their commitments remain unfulfilled promises, the head of Cuban diplomacy wrote on Twitter.

The event aims at keeping the goal agreed upon in Paris in 2015 to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees, so world leaders will be asked to make comprehensive plans to reduce gas emissions to zero by the mid century.

However, non-governmental organizations and activists such as Greenpeace have considered the projection of some great powers at the event as apathetic and conservative.

According to the British government, a group of 45 countries, including the United States, Japan, Vietnam, Ethiopia and Uruguay, will commit on Saturday to redouble their efforts to achieve sustainable agriculture.

In order to keep the 1.5-degree-Celsius goal alive, we need actions from the entire society, and an urgent transformation of ecosystem and crop management, food production and consumption on a global scale, UK Environment Minister George Eustice said.
