Climate change hits vulnerable populations even harder, such as through coastal erosion, cyclones, floods and health issues. It heaps inequality on inequality and insecurity on insecurity. This is why climate change will be a major priority of France’s G7 year.
The relevant Ministers and civil society representatives are meeting in Metz on 5 and 6 May 2019.
There are 4 priorities:
- Combating inequality through an inclusive ecological transition
- Supporting scientific warnings and international action on biodiversity and the climate
- Promoting tangible solutions for the climate and biodiversity
- Financing the preservation of biodiversity.
