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.
