The UK’s Vision for Tackling Climate Change
This is a transcript of a discussion on the UK’s strategy to combat climate change with Edward Davey, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change. In his speech, Daney argues that there is a pressing need for green growth as part of the British economy and that political leadership in Europe is essential to drive global ambition to tackle climate change. He further makes the case for multilateralism – as exemplified by the efforts of the UN climate negotiations in Doha - as a potent strategy to ensure climate protection.
