Letter to European Ministers for Foreign Affairs on Green Diplomacy

Climate action

Ahead of the Foreign Affairs Council on 18 March, CAN Europe has written to European Foreign Ministers to encourage them to adopt bold and ambitious conclusions to signal that the EU will fully and convincingly orient its diplomacy towards upscaled, inclusive, gender-just climate and energy action centered on significant provision of needed resources for partners’ efforts to adapt to, mitigate and address climate impacts.

Renewed and innovative efforts are urgently needed in light of the multiple, interlinked crises of climate emergency, debt distress, biodiversity loss, food insecurity, conflicts, poverty and humanitarian suffering in particular in the most climate vulnerable countries and regions in the Global South, and the urgent need to ramp up action as we are almost halfway through this critical decade.
