COP 28: Bhutan urges world to take immediate, robust global action to tackle climate crisis

| @indiablooms | 10 Dec 2023, 10:15 pm

A top Bhutanese official has urged the world to take immediate and robust global action to address the escalating climate crisis.

During his address at the COP 28 Dubai Summit, Bhutan's Secretary of the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources  Karma Tshering cited the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports which predict detrimental effects on mountain regions with even the slightest temperature rise.

“Warming in mountain regions is several times faster than the global average, posing significant risks including Glacial Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF). Therefore, we reiterate our submissions on mountain issues including the call for a dialogue on mountains and climate change,” he was quoted as saying by The Bhutan Live.

The secretary said that the launch of the National Carbon Registry and Bhutan Climate Fund marked strategic steps toward Bhutan’s entry into the carbon market.

“We would like to reiterate that climate finance must be adequate, predictable, easily accessible, and sustainable based on the priorities and needs of the most vulnerable countries. Committed countries that have provided leadership prominence in climate action must also be recognised,” said Karma Tshering.
