My remarks at the opening of #CMSCOP12

First, encouraging political leadership and partnerships, through a global compact on pollution to ensure high level engagement from both the public and private sectors. Second, strengthening policies and governance through risk assessments, enhanced legislation, multilateral agreements, and other measures; Third, adapting our lifestyles and economies to embrace sustainable consumption and production, resource efficiency and waste management. Fourth, mobilizing finance, investment and innovation in low-carbon and clean opportunities to better understand, manage and counter pollution. And, fifth, advocating for action. Citizens need to be informed and inspired to reduce their own pollution footprint and advocate for bold pollution-beating commitments from the public and private sectors.
