Minister Samuda Calls For Partnerships In Addressing Climate Change


As Jamaica marks its fifth year of ratifying the Paris Agreement, Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Senator Matthew Samuda, is calling for increased partnership between the public and private sectors in addressing the issue of climate change.

He was speaking at this year’s staging of ‘Uncut Conversations on Climate Change’ on Thursday (May 5).

Senator Samuda informed that the Government is working to ensure that Jamaica can benefit from the implementation of the Paris Agreement, which was ratified in 2017.

The Agreement sets out a global framework to avoid dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to well below two degrees Celsius and pursuing efforts to limit it to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
