Shining a Light on Climate Action Around the World - Momentum for Change Interactive Digital Report
The UN has published a new report which shines a light on some of the most innovative, scalable and practical examples of what people across the globe are doing to tackle climate change. The report features initiatives which range from a project by Google to map out how roofs of homes in the United States can be used for clean solar energy to a project in Morocco which harvests drinking water from fog.
Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, said: “The 2016 Momentum for Change projects also show that climate action is good for people – making a positive difference in lives and livelihoods, opening opportunity and protecting the planet we all share.”
The next round of awards will be presented at the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn in November.
