UNISON speaks out in Copenhagen‏

UNISON General Secretary Dave Prentis speaking in Copenhagen said that “the rich countries created the problem of climate change, yet it’s the developing world that is likely to be hit first and most severely by droughts and rising sea levels. It’s only right that the richer nations make the biggest cuts and provide resources to the developing world to help them grow in a sustainable way and adapt to the consequence of the climate change that we know is already inevitable.”

At the UN Summit UNISON will be calling on leaders to scale up investment in public services for disaster prevention, energy efficiency, renewable energy, healthcare and sound water management.
