They make the theme for this year’s debate both timely and necessary,” he asserted.President Jagdeo contended that given the gravity and urgency of the issues before the Assembly, leaders must be careful not to conduct this year’s debate in the customary rhetorical manner.“We must each, as countries approaching the floor to speak, be prepared to account for the pledges we have previously made.“We must also be bold enough to embark on a project to achieve real change to the multilateral system. This change must be based on mandates that are relevant,China Jerseys Authentic

, must be adopted and implemented urgently by the international community to stave off widespread starvation.He emphasized the need for the international community to acknowledge the inextricable link between agricultural development and food security and pointed to the World Bank’s warning that priority be given to the agricultural sector in the development process if the MDGs of halving extreme poverty and hunger by 2015 are to be realized.Climate ChangeClimate change was another issue addressed by President Jagdeo in his address to the UN General Assembly.Here, he said future generations demand that this concern be translated into rapid action.“The climate change challenge will not slow down to meet the pace set by the UN. Our response must speed up to meet the pace of climate change. The facts are straight forward; if we are to avoid catastrophic climate breakdown, we need to stabilize annual greenhouse gas emissions at about two tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent per capita by 2050,” he stated.He noted, however, that there have been some promising signs on the issue with a US$60 billion carbon market emerging from the Kyoto Protocol.“But although common sense dictates that these financial flows should be proportional to the problem being addressed, the bulk of this money stays within the developed world.”He took the opportunity to speak on his Climate Change initiative and the need for the country to receive capital flows to address tropical deforestation.
