Das COP22-Abkommen: Auswirkungen und Möglichkeiten für Afrika

by Tilmann Feltes

Klimawandel als Entwicklungs- und nicht Umweltthematik
Die alljährliche Klimakonferenz des UN-FCCC begann am Freitag, 18. November 2016. Die teilnehmenden Regierungen versuchten dort gemeinsam mit Wissenschaft und Wirtschaft eine praktikable Umsetzung des Pariser Abkommens zu erarbeiten. Überschattet wurden die Gespräche von der Wahl Donald Trumps zum Präsidenten der USA. Das Land ist eines derjenigen, welches am meisten CO2 ausstößt, ob sich die Weltgemeinschaft im Kampf gegen den Klimawandel unter einem Präsidenten Trump jedoch weiterhin auf die USA als Partner verlassen kann, bleibt ungewiss.
