  • [01] PAPADOPOULOS - UN MEETING - CLIMATE CHANGE

    President of the Republic of Cyprus, Tassos Papadopoulos, has stressed the need for the creation of an effective mechanism that would tackle global climate change. Addressing the High Level meeting on climate change, that takes place at the United Nations Headquarters, President Papadopoulos said that the international community needs no further, scientific or other proof that climate change is one of the most serious interlocking crises facing humanity today.

    The fact that we gather here today we owe largely to the increasing awareness and concern of our citizens about the impact of climate change as well as to their demand that we display the necessary political will to tackle this threat to life as we know it, he added. President Papadopoulos said that concrete measures have to be taken to effectively manage climate change risks while simultaneously working collectively and formulating longer-term policies and elaborating a comprehensive framework that will reverse, to the extent possible, the existing and future effects of climate change.

    He also noted that the United Nations is the appropriate framework in terms of legitimacy, effectiveness and efficiency in the design and execution of the way forward to ensure that the quality of life we enjoy now is passed on to future generations. Referring to the ecosystem in the Mediterranean, the Cypriot President said that it is one of those that have been under stress for some time. In particular, he referred to the marine environment which has sustained considerable damage, to the droughts and heat waves, to severe water scarcity which will be intensified and to the erosion of coastal zones.
