#ClimateChain Instagram campaign will highlight water and the environment
"Now that we can test water more cheaply and efficiently than we were able to do when the MDGs were set, we are coming to terms with the magnitude of the challenge facing the world when it comes to clean water," said Sanjay Wijeserkera, head of UNICEF's global water, sanitation and hygiene programmes. "With the new Sustainable Development Goals calling for 'safe' water for everyone, we're not starting from where the MDGs left off; it is a whole new ball game."
"Climate change is one of the greatest threats of our time, whose impact is being felt more acutely around the world," says , President and CEO of UNICEF Canada. "Children and young people are especially vulnerable to its destabilizing impact."
"We are in a race against time to stop a bad situation from becoming worse," says Morley. "We're pleased by the Government's efforts to lead the charge against climate change, and encourage to continue to support investments that prioritize children and young people, and strengthen the resilience of the poorest and most vulnerable."
Using the #ClimateChain hashtag, UNICEF Executive Director , UN General Assembly President , UN climate chief , and other prominent figures will figuratively join hands with members of the public in a chain of photographs intended to urge action to address climate change. The images will be presented at the signing of the Paris Agreement.
