Responding to Climate Change – RTCC

Responding to Climate Change Limited (RTCC) was founded by James Ramsey in 2002 and its mission is to raise awareness about climate change. It is a not-for-profit organization and it is an official Observer to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Convention for Biological Diversity (CBD), and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD). It holds “Special Advisory Status” with The United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

RTCC’s expertise lies in facilitating public sector private sector partnerships having a working knowledge of current events in the climate change debate as well as independent analysis of the current state of the negotiations. In 2012, RTCC entered into a major partnership with the United Nations Rio Conventions (see http://rioplus.org/).

RTCC supports Climate Home News (www.climatechangenews.com), which is a leading source of climate change news and an indispensable resource for people who are involved in the climate change negotiating process as well as engaging ordinary people who are concerned about climate change issues and who want to understand more about the international negotiations. Last year attracted more than two and a half million readers to its web site.

RTCC’s on demand video channel, Climate Change TV, (www.climate-change.tv) is the first online video broadcaster dedicated entirely to climate change issues with a catalogue of more than 2,000 interviews from world leaders, environment ministers, scientists, business leaders and various stakeholders within the climate change debate.

RTCC, although independent, is entirely funded by governments, international businesses, intergovernmental agencies, research institutes and donor organizations. Partners include, the governments of Morocco, France, Mexico, South Africa, Ecuador, Brazil, Denmark, Norway Sweden, UK, Canada, United States, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland and many others, as well as the World Bank, the Climate Investment Funds (CIFs) and UN Habitat.

Paris promised, Glasgow must deliver

The world must honour the promises made in Paris six years ago. That ultimately, rests with world leaders; success, or failure, of COP26 is in their hands. And so is the fate of the Paris Agreement.

“Responsibility rests with each and every country. And we must all play our part. Because on climate, the world will succeed, or fail as one.”
