Chilean President says world leaders have a ‘collective duty to act’ in response to climate change

At the UNGA Chilean President Michelle Bachelet noted that global challenges are growing. Climate change continues to aggravate inequalities because it affects above all the most vulnerable. That is why according to her world leaders have a ‘collective duty to act’. To show its unwavering solidarity, Chile, with its fraction of 0.25 per cent of carbon emissions, has pledged to reduce emissions by 20 per cent by 2020.

On issues regarding the UN Security Council, she expressed support for reform of the Security Council to limit the right of veto in the case of crimes involving the responsibility to protect and the aspiration of Germany, Brazil, Japan, and India to become permanent members.
