CARE COP23 policy paper

Today, climate change already causes harm, loss and damage, notably amongst the poorest and most vulnerable people and nations on this planet who have contributed the least to the causes of the problem. Fiji, the COP23 presiding country, and many other Pacific islands and vulnerable countries stand out as key examples for today’s harsh climate reality, as well for active solutions promoted to tackle climate change. Increasing resilience and tackling the causes and consequences of climate change is at the heart of CARE’s mission and is essential to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Sendai Framework, in particular on gender equality and the eradication of poverty.
