From Paris, Archbishop calls for climate change agreement

Archbishop Thabo
Makgoba, in Paris for the UN climate change conference, has called for an
agreement to be reached at the talks which promotes renewable energy, helps
people to adapt to climate change and where that is not possible, to give them
assistance to mitigate its effects.

He is attending the conference as a Global Climate Ambassador of the ACT Alliance, an
international ecumenical grouping of churches and faith-based organisations
concerned with development.

In a release issued by the alliance, Archbishop Thabo said:
“The UN climate talks have for many years stressed that global temperature rise
must remain well below 2 degrees, and it is now time to operationalize this
target.

“We need an agreement that will enable renewable energy uptake and sustainable
development and resilience. People need help to adapt, and when that is not
possible – when people face loss and damage to the extent that no further
adaptation is possible, there must be assistance to help them to move on.”
