That this House welcomes the Women's Global Call for Justice and the inspiring role played by women and girls in advance of and during the UN Climate Conference taking place in Paris; recognises that women and girls are not only facing severe impacts of climate change, but are central to the implementation of real solutions that produce meaningful and just action at local, regional, national and global levels; and urges UK Ministers and negotiators at the Paris climate talks to heed the demands for system change not climate change, for avoiding more than a 1.5 degree temperature rise, for embedding gender equality and human rights in all climate actions and in the Paris Protocol, for keeping the vast majority of fossil fuels in the ground, transitioning to 100 per cent renewable energy by 2050 at the latest, for implementing energy efficiency and conservation measures everywhere, by everyone, for dramatic and urgent production and consumption patterns, including and especially by those who have contributed the most to this problem from the developed world, for commitment by developed countries to take the lead in the fight to address the climate crisis and to provide developing countries with the means to mitigate and adapt to climate change, in a spirit of solidarity and justice.
