Himalayan Communities Join the Global Civil Society ​in the ​Call ​for equity and fairshare in Global Climate Action

Himalayan Communities join​ed​ the call for equity and fair share in global climate action and warn the global community of the irreparable damage that will be caused if the Himalayan ecosystems are disturbed.  Climate science paints a frightening picture—one that tells us that urgent and dramatic action is needed to have any chance at stopping irreversible global warming. This urgency is not just about the planet and the environment; it is also about people, and humanity’s capacity to secure safe and dignified lives for all. The science is unambiguous: the next 10–15 years are critical if the most dangerous effects of climate change are to be avoided. Today, the world is 0.85°C warmer than pre-industrial levels, and many people and ecosystems are already experiencing devastating impacts.

Exceeding 1.5°C will entail unacceptable impacts for billions of people and risk crossing irreversible tipping points. We can only emit a finite amount of greenhouse gases— an amount known as the ‘global carbon budget’—if we wish to keep overall increases beneath 1.5°C or even 2°C. The science indicates we are reaching this limit very quickly, and may even have exceeded it.  Accepting the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)) scenarios does provide us with a global carbon budget, but one that will be consumed in 10–20 years at current emissions levels  and entail very significant levels of risk. A commitment to keep at least within this limited budget, and to share the effort of doing so equitably and fairly, is at the heart of the international debate around climate change. ​A Climate Justice Yatra and ​a series of meetings and press briefings across Himachal Pradesh was undertaken.
