President Hage Geingob has pleaded with leaders of the global South to see the fight against climate as a collective responsibility and not a burden.
He was addressing the G77 and China Summit at the 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28) held in Dubai on Saturday.
“Let us recognise that the fight against climate change is not a burden, but a shared responsibility and an opportunity for positive transformation,” he said.
Geingob called on the global South to unite on this cause.
“Our response to climate change must extend beyond national borders. We must engage in open dialogue, share knowledge, and support one another in implementing effective climate policies in the global South,” he said.
The Group of 77 and China is an intergovernmental organisation of 134 economies meant to represent the interests of the global South within the United Nations.
