Saakashvili to discuss climate change problems2010-12-06 12:14
President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili is going to take part in the summit dedicated to the problems of climate change, Rosbalt reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Together with Minister for Environment and Natural Resources Protection Goga Khachidze, Georgian leader is setting off for Mexico today.
According to Khachidze, last year, a similar summit was held in Copenhagen but the participants failed to come to any definite agreements.
Let us remind you that in October, the Mayors' Agreement first international conference was held in Tbilisi to discuss global problems, such as climate warming, discharge of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and switching to electric transport.
Georgia became the first member-country of the EU Eastern Partnership to sign the Mayor's Agreement implying the reduction of the carbon dioxide discharge into the atmosphere by 20 percent until 2020.
"We must make people understand that responding to a global challenge, such as climate change, is a practical necessity. For example, the reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere will significantly reduce cancer among the population, which will consequently bring down the cancer treatment costs", - Mayor of Tbilisi Gigi Ugulava stated.
