Instead of sidelining the fight against climate change, the global credit crisis could hasten countries’ efforts to create “green growth” industries by revamping the financial system behind them, the U.N. climate chief said on Friday.
But that would depend on governments helping poor countries — who are key to saving the planet’s ecology — tackle their problems, instead of spending most available money on rescuing the financial world, Yvo de Boer told reporters.
Without reaching out a hand to developing countries, it would be very difficult to make advances on the rest of the environmental agenda, De Boer said.
Environment ministers will meet in two months’ time in Poznan, Poland, to prepare for the Copenhagen summit, which is due to agree on a new global-warming accord to succeed the Kyoto Protocol, which expires in 2012.
Ministers in Poznan must make clear they were “willing to put financial resources, the architecture, the institutions in place that will allow developing countries to engage in a global approach on both mitigation and adaptation,” he said.
