President Of Hungary Sends Climate Protection Proposal To United Nations Secretary General

Robert Velkey 2017.09.29.

President János Áder has written to United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres with a series of proposals on how to ensure the success of efforts to protect the climate.

The letter posted on the president’s official homepage proposes expanding the international alliance fighting for climate protection. In the letter, Áder argues that the involvement of cities, regions and federal states is indispensable, since they have a key role to play in implementing the Paris agreement.

Áder urged these players to get involved in quantifying and scheduling climate goals at this year’s round of negotiations in Bonn before the 2019 climate summit. He also urged getting the leaders of the  ten countries with the highest emissions and their largest cities on board,  since they could help expand their countries’ climate-related commitments before 2020.
