Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus said there is a new glabal agreement to tackle climate change and the agreement needs to be implemented quickly.
Speaking at an international conference on climate change in Seoul last week, Prof Yunus said: “As the countries develop, they became so focussed on the development. They forget about what they are doing on the planet.”
The inaugural Sydney Peace Prize recipient called for international cooperation in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and called for a binding international agreement to be implemented.
