Helen Clark: Statement on Outcome of Paris Climate Change ConferenceDec 12, 2015
I welcome the historic outcome of the Paris Climate Change Conference announced today which sends a strong signal that countries, rich and poor, are committed to work together to tackle climate change.
The agreement reached in Paris is an expression of common resolve to protect our planet and build a more resilient and equitable world for all.
The world has before it an unprecedented opportunity to keep the planet safe while also advancing human development.
UNDP, together with its partners, stands ready to help translate what has been agreed in Paris into climate action which will make a decisive difference to people and to our planet.
UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. On the ground in 177 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.
