Christian Aid welcomes UK call with High Ambition Coalition in Katowice

Following the announcement from a group of progressive countries at the UN climate talks in Katowice, Poland, Christian Aid’s Head of Policy, Alison Doig said:

“These talks are in need of a shot in the arm if they are to deliver an ambitious outcome that meets the demands of science and the needs of the most vulnerable.

“It’s great to see the UK joining this much needed High Ambition Coalition.  Without a formal COP decision committing countries to ramp up their national pledges by 2020, this summit will not be a success. What we need now is more countries to back this move and make it the focus for the last days of the talks.”
