THE Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland will address the 2020 Raisina Dialogue in New Delhi, India next week.
Speaking at India’s flagship conference on geopolitics and geo-economics, she will highlight the need for multilateral responses to navigate the most pressing issues facing the global community, with a focus on how women can lead the way in tackling the complex and interconnected challenges of the 21st century.
The Secretary-General is available for interviews on key issues such as: The urgent need to achieve at least a 30 percent target for women in decision-making in the political, public and private spheres to benefit from gender diversity;
The urgency of limiting the global post-industrial temperature increase to 1.5°C to avoid the irreversible effects of climate change and the need to support increased ambition and action;
The acute threat climate change poses to the ocean and the recognition of ocean action as part of the climate solution;
A statement by the organisation noted the need for all nations to be able to trade freely and fairly within a transparent, inclusive, and open multilateral rules-based system, which supports sustainable and balanced growth in which all communities can participate.
It added that interviews may be conducted in London until 10 January and thereafter in New Delhi from 13 January.
