Swedish PM for creation of low-carbon world economy

United Nations, Oct 1 (IANS) Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofvenon called for action to create “a low-carbon and climate-resilient world economy” to protect the ecosystem of the Earth.

“It’s not a choice, but a necessity for survival,” the prime minister said while addressing the annual high-level debate of the UN General Assembly here on Wednesday, Xinhua reported.

“We need a course of action to create a low-carbon and climate-resilient world economy,” Lofven said. “We must protect land and ocean ecosystems.”

“The world must reach a fair, ambitious and legally binding agreement in Paris in December, which over time keeps the rise in global temperature as far as possible below two degrees Celsius,” he added.

“And Sweden will play its part, becoming one of the first fossil-free nations in the world, and having no net emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050,” he said.

“We will be strong financial supporters of the Green Climate Fund and international climate action, to support adaptation and transfer to technology on a global scale,” he added.

The United Nations is to convene a conference on climate change in Paris in December in order to reach an ambitious and universal agreement on the global efforts to tackle the issue of climate change.
