The Lands and Environment Minister, Christophe Bazivamo, has called for worldwide execution of what environmental conventions stipulate to curb global warming. 

Bazivamo said in a recent interview that if some countries deliberately refuse to do what the international community expects from them, then the whole process would get paralysed.

The US, Australia and other top twelve industrialised countries have downplayed key environmental conventions intended to reduce nature destruction.

Bazivamo described such nations as deceptive defendants of their industrial activities, which have continued to harm the world’s greenbelt more especially the airspace environment.

On the recent proposal by global environmentalists to UN 62nd General Assembly to establish an international court for ecological crimes, Bazivamo expressed skepticism.

“Any measure to punish those causing global warming is good, but more emphasis should be put on genuine execution of international conventions against that,” he said.

The minister’s appeal is likely to be realised as the UN recently vowed to renew its effort to take an increasingly leading role in guiding the global climate change debate.

The agreement which was finally reached at was a response to focus on necessary broader and deeper action to reduce gas emissions.

 The industrialised nations were tasked during the assembly to lead the campaign with targets set, though all countries are expected to contribute to the solution.
The UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon, told world leaders that it was everyone’s responsibility to support those most affected and vulnerable.

He said that climate change will be one of the top priorities during his five-year tenure in office.

Yvo de Boer, the Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), said the meeting of the over 80 world leaders at the UN’s high-level summit on climate change was a sign of growing consensus on the issue.

Another equally important meeting, under the patronage of the UN, is due to take place in Bali, Indonesia in December.
