In his statement, Mayor of Kazan, President of UCLG-Eurasia Ilsur Metshin has referred to the year of 2015 when the Paris Agreement on Climate Change supported by many national and local governments was signed. “Today, I am more than ever convinced that the Paris Agreement can and should be a tool capable to consolidate efforts to combat the causes of climate change and stop the growth of greenhouse gas emissions. We share with the entire world community the goals and responsibility for climate protection,” Ilsur Metshin said.
