马来西亚核准《巴黎协定》

(马拉喀什, 16日讯) 马来西亚自然资源与环境部部长拿督斯礼万祖奈迪医生今日于 《联合国气候变化框架公约》 (UNFCCC) 在马拉喀什举行的第二十二届缔约方会议 (the 22nd Conference of the Parties) 中的高阶层会议 (High Level Segment) 宣布马来西亚继今年4月22日在联合国总部签署 《巴黎协定》 后, 日前已经呈递相关文件, 预料将在数日内确认核准 《巴黎协定》。《巴黎协定》 乃 《公约》 下继 《京都议定书》 后第二份有法律约束力的气候协议,为2020年后全球应对气候变化部署行动, 将全球平均气温升幅控制在工业化前平均气温之上2摄氏度, 竭力控制气温上升幅度的目标则设定为1.5摄氏度。全球一共193个国家签署了这一协定。根据该条约,只要55个 《公约》 缔约方(其温室气体排放量占全球总排放量至少约55%)交存其批准、接受、核准或加入文书之日后第30天起将生效。目前共110缔约方核准了该条约,包括欧盟国家,加拿大,日本,中国等强国,该全球气候协议已经于11月4日正式生效。拿督斯礼万祖奈迪医生在致词中表明马来西亚对执行 《巴黎协定》 的决心,全力减少碳排放量。他也重申马来西亚对《公约》以及 《巴黎协定》 中共同但有区别的责任原则 (Common but Differentiated Responsibilities) 的信心,期望发展中国家就气候变化减缓和适应以及行动获得先进国家支持。此外,马来西亚也将配合联合国定下的可持续发展目标计划 (Sustainable Development Goals),朝消除贫困,保护地球和确保繁荣前进。就森林管理而言,目前马来西亚的森林覆盖为54.5%,马登红树林自1905年开始就执行可持续管理个案就是个引以为傲的持续性森林管理例子。与此同时,拿督斯礼万祖奈迪医生表示马来西亚致力保护森林的决心,全力推动减少毁林和森林退化所致排放量方案 (REDD+)。对于正在马拉喀什出席该会议的全体国家代表团,以及马来西亚青年代表团和其他非政府非盈利环保或气候变化组织来说,该消息确实振奋人心。马来西亚青年代表团成员嘉斯敏 (Jasmin Irisha Jim Ilham),张翔隆 (Kelvin Diong Siong Loong),娜察娣拉 (Nachatira Thuraichamy),蔡满满 (Choy…
