Lithuania is among leaders in fighting climate change
President Dalia Grybauskaitė attended the Climate Change Conference (COP21) and delivered a speech at the session of world leaders. The Paris conference aims to reach a global agreement to further reduce climate change after the second Kyoto commitment period ends in 2020.
The President emphasized that if no effective and global measures to curb climate change were taken in time, consequences could be catastrophic for all the countries in world. Global warming results in the expansion of the deserts, reduction of arable land and scarcity of water and other natural resources, which fuels armed conflicts and growing migration.
