Today Change Partnership together with 65 other leading civil society organisations sent this letter to G20 Ministers outlining how they can fulfil their commitments to address climate change by phasing out subsidies for fossil fuels.

The letter builds on the commitment of the G7 to decarbonise the global economy over the course of this century and recommends the G20 to “incite clear action towards decarbonisation and climate ambition in advance of the global climate summit in Paris”. It also identifies three key areas where G20 leadership can help unlock the pace of international climate change negotiations:

  1. Implementation of the G20 commitment to end inefficient fossil fuel subsidies.
  2. Agreement to end public finance for coal.
  3. Progress on delivering climate finance needs.
