BROKEN PROMISES? - Info Slides

As the COP28 summit has ended in disappointment, why are global leaders failing to protect our planet? 🔥🌿
Unfortunately, while the Paris Climate Agreement was a significant political milestone, it is not legally binding. And the biggest carbon emitters continue to avoid their commitments.
Financing, delivering pledges, especially when it comes to the full fossil fuel phase-out, and holding polluters accountable is a significant challenge, and the gap between promises and action is growing.
But there is hope:
The International Court of Justice could soon help to establish transparent and accountable legal mechanisms that could force countries to uphold human rights principles and safeguard our futures. 🕊️

    The voice of leaders in saving the planet, should be leading people; but unfortunately the leaders we have nowadays are more concern by their interest and not the planet.

      All these declarations and summits should have legally binding decisions

        @Kevin I couldn't agree more. Otherwise what will make them not break promises already made?

          @Kevin Thats 100% what we need. What do empty words count in the end when they are not followed by actions?

          Its my hope that the International court will save us the headache of accountability by nations. This will in leapfrogging the climate change restoration.

            @tabitha_kimani We need strong legal measures as well as precedents set in court to ensure accountability is the order of the day

              It's infuriating to see leaders set ambitious goals at conferences like COP28 but fail to follow through with concrete action.

                @george_kariuki They set these goals with only the plan to fool the masses. They need to be held accountable

                  @george_kariuki True. We need new policies and fixed mechanisms to hold governments and political leaders responsible and make sure they stay in line with their promises - to make sure it's not just empty words but actions!

                  I think political leaders are more concerned with personal interests than interests of the planet. We have to root such people out

                    @munene_mugambi I guess you are right. Still to this day, it's more about economic growth than about preventing the worst crisis humanity has ever faced. Unbelievable, isn't it?
