UN General Assembly 67th session: Statement delivered at the General Debate - Luxembourg

A statement delivered to the 67th General Assembly annual General Debate by the Grand Duke of Luxembourg, in which he stated that the effects of global warming were “catastrophic” and threatened to undo progress made toward the Millennium Development Goals. He called for more commitments to be made in reducing carbon emissions, and for more adequate financial and technological resources to be allocated to the most vulnerable countries, so that they could adapt to climate change. He also urged the international community to act together. “It is a matter of survival,” he stressed, and the United Nations was where the international community could organize its collective survival.
