COP26: Cingolani, climate change is Italy’s top priority

ROME/NEW YORK, OCTOBER 26 – Addressing a High-level General Assembly thematic debate on “Delivering climate action: for people, planet and prosperity”, the Italian Minister of Ecological Transition of Italy, Roberto Cingolani, recalled that climate change, clean energy transition, and sustainable recovery are the strongest priorities of Italy’s agenda in every multilateral forum.

“At a time when youth and vulnerable have suffered the most for the consequences of a long and tragic pandemic, it is crucial to give them voice and support in the effort to tackle the existential threat of climate change, and to restore hope towards the building of a better future”, said Cingolani: “Less than a month ago in Milan – at the Youth for Climate and at the PreCOP- we put youth and vulnerable in the front seat of our path toward a greener and more just world. We did it together with the UN”, said the Italian Minister, stressing that in the months ahead of the two events, more than 500 events were organized as part of the All4Climate-Italy2021 program, aiming to support all those citizens, associations and companies engaged in addressing climate change through concrete and effective actions.

Cingolani said that he was impressed by the discussions that took place and by the genuine willingness to engage to find common grounds and solutions to these outstanding issues critical to achieve a successful outcome at COP26.

“Science is clear: the IPCC report shows us that we can achieve it, but only if we are all working decisively in the same direction. Ambitious climate action at all levels (national, regional, international) can avoid the most devastating effects of climate change, but only if all nations act together. Similarly, the recent NDC Synthesis report indicates that while there is a clear trend that greenhouse gas emissions are being reduced over time, nations must urgently double their climate efforts if they are to prevent global temperature increases beyond 1.5C by the end of the century”, added the Italian Minister: “It is now time to deliver on commitments “We need to spare no effort if we want to live up to our responsibilities We have run out of time”.  (@OnuItalia)
