Dessima Williams

Grenada’s Climate Change Ambassador, Dessima Williams, describes how the mood has lifted. She notes that they need to move on from the lack of transparency and inclusiveness, and move on to rebuild confidence and a sense of purpose. She is adamant that “Copenhagen was not a total disaster” and points to the advance on the text and notes that both the LCA and KP camps were engaged. Important issues ahead include staying back on two tracks, producing a legally-binding agreement and ensuring there isn’t a gap between the commitment periods. She ends on explaining that multilateralism is an alternative to war, despair and environmental disaster
