The environment is a top priority for developed and developing economies, which is why it’s significant that the latest Conference of the Parties (COP19) climate change conference was held in one of the most economically promising countries of the CEE region. It is clear that we all need to take urgent action to mitigate the impact of climate change. Otherwise we will bequeath to our children a world much worse than the one in which we grew up.
