COP 21 showed unity among Caribbean countries (repost)

THE Caribbean Community’s (Caricom) well prepared and experienced team of negotiators, and a focused, unified campaign, helped Caricom get its red line climate change issues all represented in the final Agreement at the just ended Climate Change conference, COP 21, in Paris, France.

Caricom Secretary-General Irwin LaRocque has hailed the strong regional collaboration, given the critical importance of climate change to the region’s survival.

“We saw our community operating at its best on the international front in Paris,” LaRocque stated emphatically as he reflected on the 30 November to 11 December conference that led to the approval of an historic Climate Change Agreement by 195 countries.
