Divided over green issues

LAST Sunday, June 5, was World Environment Day, a day marked every year to remind us of the urgent need to care for the fragile planet that we live on.

The United Nations has initiated many programmes to arrest the decline in global environmental health. We have the comprehensive Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”. There’s the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) that was created to galvanise global actions to tackle the climate change that is threatening humankind’s survival. There are many more other initiatives by the UN to address the issues of the environment.
