As the 27th Conference of Parties, COP 27, Session of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, UNFCCC, kicks off this week in Egypt, former Delta State Governor, James Ibori, yesterday, urged world leaders to achieve a zero-carbon future for all.

He wrote: “As world leaders gather in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt for the 27th Climate Change Conference, it is imperative that they make concerted efforts towards achieving a zero-carbon future for all.

“The impact of climate change cannot be overemphasized as we now live with its devastating effects. The world must decide to accelerate its action plan towards achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.”
