“Sec. Dominguez takes pride in the Sustainable Finance Roadmap and even declares concern about the marginalized sectors vulnerability in climate and ecological disasters. But the construction of large destructive dams and the continuance of chemical-intensive farming through GMOs defeats the purpose of climate action,” she further added.
“We need decisive action now to avert climate catastrophe”. This is United Nations’ (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ message to world leaders in a preparatory roundtable discussion for the upcoming Climate Change Conference (COP26). In the 76th UN General Debate on October 6, 2021, leaders from different Pacific nations echoed his call and warned that setbacks in fighting the triple planetary crisis will jeopardize the world as the COVID-19 pandemic rages on.
