Pan African Climate Justice Alliance commends Azerbaijan's leadership in global climate action

Baku, May 10, AZERTAC

The Pan African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA), a global climate movement that brings together NGOs from 51 countries, issued a statement hailing Azerbaijan's leadership in global climate action.

The statement was signed by the head of the Alliance, Mithika Mwenda, and 128 African NGOs.

AZERTAC presents the statement: “We, the undersigned civil society organizations, wholeheartedly support the UNFCCC-COP29 Presidency and the Republic of Azerbaijan, the hosting Country, as they embark on the vital mission of steering the global community towards a sustainable, climate-resilient, and ecologically just future.

Given our shared concern regarding the planetary emergency and environmental challenges posing an existential threat to the planet and humanity, we find inspiration in Azerbaijan's dedication and leadership showcased in promoting climate action through global diplomatic, political, and economic interactions.

We stand at a pivotal moment where radical and resolute steps are imperative to alleviate the effects of climate change, safeguard vulnerable communities, effectively adapt, build resilience, and conserve our invaluable ecosystems for generations to come.

In this context, we encourage Azerbaijan to provide leadership in promoting dialogue, genuine collaboration, inclusivity, and innovative outreaches as we sound alarm on the urgency of global climate action.

As Azerbaijan steps into the role of global leadership for COP29, we wish to express our profound confidence in her capability to foster significant cooperation, inspire ambitious pledges, and navigate the World towards the transition to low-carbon, climate-resilient development pathways.

We unite in solidarity with the rest of the civil society – globally - in our collective endeavors to achieve climate justice, accelerate climate action, and forge a promising future for our planet and future generations.
