Unprecedented climate agreement is ‘best outcome for all’

Date: 12 December 2015

The Least Developed Countries (LDC) Group today welcome the news that all Parties in Paris at COP21 support the adoption of the new climate agreement.

Mr Giza Gaspar Martins, Chair of the Least Developed Countries Group said: “We are living in unprecedented times, which call for unprecedented measures. Nothing that has gone before compares to this historic, legally binding climate agreement. The COP Presidency and all Parties worked hard to deliver this accord which will move the world to a 1.5 degrees goal, while aiming to leave no-one behind. It is the best outcome we could have hoped for, not just for the Least Developed Countries, but for all citizens of the world.”
