Togo minister demands more climate finance


From Qatar: COP18 UN Climate Change Conference 2012 in February 2013

Madame Dede Ahoefa Ekoue – Togo Minister of Environment

“We need more finance and access to new technology, because technology is critical for us to leapfrog our progress towards a green economy.

“In addition we must all of us make a clear, strong effort to reduce all the emissions. We don’t want to get into a scenario where we have the temperature rising above 2C.

“We want more language around funding, because this is critical to save lives and build our economy in the face of this threat.”
