HSI media contacts at Bonn Climate Change talks in the lead-up to the Paris agreement
As World Environment Day looms nearer on June 5th, Humane Society International (HSI) is continuing to campaign for an international climate change agreement that will effectively protect tropical forests around the world and consequently reduce global emissions and save global biodiversity.
HSI will be fully represented at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Bonn, Germany between June 1 - 11, putting our case for strong measures to retain and protect in-tact global rainforests as the world moves towards the Paris Agreement.
HSI will be represented at the Conference by climate change and biodiversity advisers, Alistair Graham and Peg Putt who have prepared an HSI Special Bulletin entitled, “Climate Change – Forest Carbon Counts”, making the case for significantly increased forest protection which will be distributed to thousands of diplomats, negotiators, civil servants, scientists, NGOs and media before and during the UNFCCC meeting.
This publication is the first of four parts that will be produced between now and after the Paris Agreement, explaining, as the Special Bulletin by-line suggests that, “Emissions from forest degradation (logging) are too big to ignore”.
This new publication and four other HSI climate change Special Bulletins, entitled ‘Call for Truth in Targets’ Parts 1 – 4, tabled at previous UNFCCC meetings, can be found at www.hsi.org.au/go/to/25/climate-change
