The Appeal here

Russian environmental NGOs are concerned about the unacceptably slow pace of the preparation of the new UN climate agreement, as well as the fact that both the agreement itself, and the countries’ announced national pledges are insufficient for containing the global warming even within the 2-degree limit – while we should be aiming for 1.5.

Environmental non-governmental organisations (NGOs) consider it necessary to adopt a strong global climate agreement in December 2015, as set out in the documents of the UN Convention on Climate Change. UN climate conference in 2014 in Lima, COP-20, shall make a practical step towards the conclusion of such an agreement.

Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) note the importance of the documents on climate change adopted by Russia, including the Presidential Decree on reducing greenhouse gases emissions, the Climate Doctrine of the Russian Federation and the Comprehensive Plan for Implementation of the Climate Doctrine of the Russian Federation for the period up to 2020, as well as governmental decisions to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy intensity of the Russian economy.
