SARAJEVO, Bosnia, (December 5,2007) – In the fight against climate change no country can act alone. This means that countries such as Bosnia have a role in this process, was stated in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo at the presentation of this year’s Global Human Development Report, which addresses the issue of climate change.

The report titled “Fighting Climate Change: Human Solidarity in a Divided World”, which was presented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), speaks about the methods of adjustment and fight by countries against the negative effects of global warming and climate change.

The report stresses that global warming is already happening and that an overwhelming amount of evidence connects the rise in temperature with the increased concentration of greenhouse gases in the world’s atmosphere.

Even though 15 percent of the world’s population lives in wealthy countries, they are responsible for almost half of the CO2 emissions, while climate change is most strongly felt by poor countries.

UNDP Deputy Resident Representative in Bosnia Stefan Priesner said that climate change is the most important challenge in term of development and if action is not taken quickly no country will remain immune from the problem of climate change.
