It’s time for us to discuss, plan and act together to protect Cambodia and our children from climate change. We must address climate change from the heart, and not treat it as an abstraction or a problem for other countries.
The recent landmark international climate change agreement signed in Paris is a turning point for the planet. It’s the best chance to keep Earth hospitable to human life. Countries agreed to globally coordinate action on climate change; embraced a common goal to strive for a limit of 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels; and stated that emissions should peak “as soon as possible” and then rapidly decline.
