LMP CALLS ON GOVT TO BOOST CLIMATE PROTECTION EFFORTS

 

Green opposition LMP has submitted a draft resolution to parliament, calling on the government to declare curbing climate change and adapting to its effects a matter of strategic importance. LMP lawmaker Erzsébet Schmuck told a press conference that the draft resolution calls on the Hungarian government to stand up for defining and achieving climate protection targets in the European Union. It also proposes a Hungarian climate protection law to be enacted by Oct. 30 and a green programme by the end of November, outlining Hungary’s full decarbonisation until 2050, Schmuck said. The government should also ensure that Hungarian and EU budget funds cannot be used for projects hindering climate protection and the adaptation to climate change, she said.
