Libya has signed the Paris Protocol on Climate Change along with 174 other countries at a ceremony held at the UN headquarters.
Libya's UN representative Ibrahim Al Dabashi said at the signing ceremony 'climate change is a big challenge facing all humanity, and the agreement is an important step to confront it, but it needs a collective will to turn it from mere written text to concrete deeds.
Al Dabashi pointed out that 95 per cent of Libya's territory was desert, and the rest is threatened with desertification. He welcomed the Paris Protocol saying Libya would honour its provisions, and would seek to ratify it as soon as possible.
