There is no issue that merits more urgent attention or more
immediate action right now in the world than climate change, according
to Thomas Lynge Jensen, Associate Program Specialist for the UNDP’s
Regional Energy Program for Poverty Reduction Centre in Bangkok.
Speaking to regional media in Samoa today, Jensen said this urgency was also included in the Human Development Report (2007/2008) released by UNDP. The report emphasized that while climate change will undermine international efforts to combat poverty, it must be seen that “the fight against poverty and the fight against the effects of climate change as interrelated efforts”.
Jensen said that climate change is not only an environment issue but also a human development issue that regional governments must include in their policies.
“It is the defining human development issue of our generation.”
