Vice President Alupo address to the UN General Assembly

“_We must note that despite contributing an insignificant amount of global greenhouse gas emissions, the African continent like many developing regions of the world suffer the effects of climate change to a disproportionate degree_.

It is regrettable and hypocritical that some of the regions and nations that mismanaged the environment and are disproportionately responsible for global warming, have embarked on a rigorous campaign to thwart efforts of other countries, to responsibly and sustainably develop the oil and gas sectors.    Our view is that development should be environmentally friendly, inclusive and provide benefits for all – it should leave no one behind.

The need to reform the UN Security Council is now more urgent and imperative than ever before.

The present geopolitical realities are more compelling for a comprehensive reform of the Security Council to make way for equitable representation
