Haiti - Environment : Michaëlle Jean welcomes the agreement of the COP21
Saturday, at the end of the 21th UN Climate Conference (COP21) held in Paris by France, Michaëlle Jean, Secretary General of the International Organization of the Francophonie (OIF) welcomed the agreement presented by the French Presidency of the COP21 and adopted by all countries. She also praised the strong mobilization of Francophone states to adopt this universal agreement.

"The 196 delegations did not miss this moment of truth by adopting historic commitments in the history of humanity, carriers of a big ambition for the fate of the planet [...] Here we have a balanced agreement that contains elements that offer the opportunity to all governments to take action more decisive in terms of mitigation, adaptation and financing. The world can now count on a universal, ambitious and inclusive agreement, taking into account the respective capabilities of countries, including the most vulnerable," declared Ms. Jean.

The text including in particular a limitation of the temperature increase below 2°C, a revision of the commitments mandatory every 5 years, more predictable financial support to developing countries and also offers financial mechanism clarified. This agreement on climate establishes the framework for international action needed to combat or mitigate climate change at all levels of society with all stakeholders, particularly women and youth.

Michaëlle Jean recalled that the COP 22 "to be held next year in Marrakesh (Morocco), another country of the Francophonie, will be an important date for the implementation of measures, monitoring and evaluation of commitments made in Paris. The International Organisation of La Francophonie remains strongly mobilized, through its Institute of Francophonie for sustainable development, to maintain the spirit of Paris and assist Member States and governments to fulfill their obligations in order to fully meet their obligations in order to impose resilient development paths and low-carbon."
