United Nations Development Programme, (www.undp.org) has joined the World Climate Summit 2012, Doha, Qatar as an Institutional Partner.
Helen Clark (pictured), UNDP Administrator said, “UNDP is pleased to become a partner of the World Climate Summit in time for the COP 18 in Doha. Climate change is asking us to think differently about development and admit that business-as-usual is no longer an option. UNDP is working in partnership with developing countries to establish the enabling environments needed to form stronger private and public partnerships that generate innovative solutions to mitigate and adapt to climate change.”
“We hope that our collaboration with the World Climate Summit will bring about a constructive dialogue on the right mix of policies, skills, and incentives that can influence behavior change and encourage investments in climate-friendly businesses and activities in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and generate new economic opportunities and jobs. This kind of transformational change is what is needed to realize the future we want..”
Michael Mathres, Partner & Founder, World Climate Limited said: “We’re delighted to have the UNDP on board the World Climate Summit. We need new development models that are more sustainable and the UNDP is working with many public and private sector stakeholders to achieve this. We will show that it is possible to achieve prosperity while at the same time tackling climate change.”
