“Minister Jure Leben is not happy with the outcome of the Katowice Climate Change Conference because the agreement does not acknowledge the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). He told the press that he would propose bold emission-cutting policies for the future.

The IPCC report warns that countries need to take immediate action in order to limit the warming of the atmosphere to 1.5 degrees centigrade by the end of the century.

Leben told his counterparts in Katowice that Slovenia wanted to see more ambitious goals, adding that Slovenia would double its Green Climate Fund input and would also set up its own EUR 148m climate change programme.” (Slovenia Times)
