THE CLIMATE CRISIS IS A GLOBAL INJUSTICE THAT REQUIRES GLOBAL ACTION
Floods, fires, heatwaves, and other climate impacts are hurting every part of the world, but they’re hitting poor countries and marginalized groups first and hardest – those who bear the least responsibility for the climate crisis.
As a wealthy country and one of the world’s top ten emitters, Canada has the responsibility and the power to step up as a global leader on climate action.
International climate diplomacy spaces – such as United Nations climate conferences and negotiations, G7 and G20 meetings, and other fora and summits – provide opportunities to create global momentum for ambitious action.
Working closely with Climate Action Network International and our allies around the globe, we use these moments to galvanize action on issues such as increasing climate finance, eliminating fossil fuel subsidies, protecting nature and biodiversity, phasing out oil, gas, and coal, and scaling up renewable energy. We mobilize Canadian civil society to participate in these spaces and make our voices heard, while providing advice to the Canadian government on international climate policy.
