Minister for Ecosocialism of Venezuela, Josué Lorca, expressed during his participation in the event that the Bolivarian Government is convinced that a better world is possible, reasons for which it will support all attempts to preserve humanity.

Lorca pointed out that COP26 makes it possible to complete implementation arrangements of the Paris Agreement and stressed that in Venezuela these actions are addressed from the principles of ‘ecosocialism’.

In terms of forests, the deforestation rate is of 47 percent, in a country where they represent 1.19 percent of such areas on the planet, the high official gave as example in his speech.

Likewise, he reiterated the complaint against the unilateral coercive measures imposed by the United States and its allies on other nations, which, he assured, are contrary to the basic foundations of International and Environmental Law and restrict the right to sustainable development.

The United Nations Conference on Climate Change in 2021 is the 26th meeting of the parties of the UN Framework Convention on the subject and is being held from October 31 to November 12 in the city of Glasgow, Scotland.

The meeting was originally scheduled for November 2020, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic it was postponed; within the framework of the meeting, the 16th meeting of parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP16) and the third meeting of parties to the Paris Agreement are also planned.
