« Around the world storms, floods and wildfires are intensifying. Air pollution sadly affects the health of tens of millions of people and unpredictable weather causes untold damage to homes and livelihoods too. » (COP 26 Explained, 2021)
Climate change is no fiction, and as human beings, we need to step out from a self-centred mindset and do efforts to collaborate and make decisions together to build a greener future and positively impact global environmental health.
This month the Library is highlighting SGD13 – Climate Action and the Conference of the Parties, COP26 to tackle climate change, organized by the UN, which will be held from 31st September to 12th of November, in Glasgow, UK.
This is an important moment to stay tuned as the last conference, COP21 held in Paris made history. The countries participating in COP21 signed the Paris Agreement and committed to implementing actions to limit global warming.
