Our Planet Magazine features President Christian's "Scoring a Goal"

After having participated in the official signing of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change in a High-level Signature Ceremony at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City in April 2016, on behalf of the Federated States of Micronesia, H.E. President Peter M. Christian joined other countries in a collected resolve to address challenges arising from the effects of climate change, following the commitments that were made at the UN Climate Change conference in Paris last year.

The following article by President Christian was published in Our Planet - United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) magazine.  In the excerpt, President Christian highlights the need to accelerate action and the phase down of HFCs under the Montreal Protocol that was first proposed by Micronesia. “The world is moving towards a fast phase-down of powerful greenhouse gases thanks to Small Island Developing States.” Please click on the following text to view article in its entirety.
