“The Paris Climate agreement is not the end but the beginning of the road. The world has rallied around clear targets that now need to be implemented to avoid a looming climate catastrophe. This is the historic responsibility not only of politicians and businesses, but also of citizens, who need to hold their leaders to account for the targets they have set. It is a responsibility that rests on the shoulders of us all.”

-- Kofi Annan, Chair of the Africa Progress Panel
