Regional and international cooperation key to mitigate impacts of climate crisis, conference in Cyprus debates

Regional and international cooperation is the key to mitigate the impacts of climate crisis, keynote speakers underlined during their opening speeches at the 2nd international conference on climate change in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East taking place Wednesday and Thursday in the coastal city of Pafos, Cyprus.

Professor Costas Papanicolas, President of the Cyprus Institute which co-organises the conference and advisor to the President of Cyprus on climate change, noted that the climate crisis is the greatest challenge humanity is faced with and the time to act is long overdue.

He said that in a few weeks in Glasgow, during COP26, the global situation will be assessed and an agreement will be reached for the coming years.
