'Developing countries' hold 'industrialised' West responsible for climate change
Johannesburg - A meeting of developing nations, including South Africa, reached an agreement that the 'industrialised' West was responsible for most of the climate change across the globe.
"Industrialised countries have become industrialised because they used common space - atmosphere," News24 quoted Luiz Alberto Figueredo Machado, a Brazilian representative, as saying.
Machado was speaking at the close of a meeting between Brazil, South Africa, India and China on climatic changes across the world, ahead of a larger meeting, which will be held later in Qatar.
He further explained that the problem of 'equity', where the developing nations needed more leeway in emitting carbon, as opposed to developed nations, which had already industrialised.
South Africa and the other developing nations concluded that the 'issue of equity' was one of the problems that should be addressed ahead of the meeting in Qatar. (ANI)
