Ministers of Kenya and Finland Call for Urgent Climate Action

Ministers in Kenya and Finland are calling their global colleagues for urgent climate action. Finnish Minister of Agriculture and the Environment Kimmo Tiilikainen and Kenyan Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Natural Resources Judi Wakhungu have signed a common brief to world’s ministers of the environment. They are pointing out that there are proven climate solutions available that can already take us far. They write:

“For example, a group of international institutions from 11 countries released a study, ‘Green to Scale’, which looked at scaling up proven low carbon solutions to comparable countries. The report shows that there are various affordable and attractive solutions for countries to choose from. Simply doing what some countries both in the global North and South have already done would take us a long way in bridging the emission gap.”
