Consultants plan to write an open letter to governments attending the Copenhagen climate change summit in December, appealing for a deal which they say will help end war, poverty and starvation.
The FIDIC conference is held every two years and is this year based in London, hosted by the ACE.
Consultants have called for binding agreements on carbon reduction levels between governments at the coming Copenhagen summit. Without agreement at Copenhagen, FIDIC members believe the world faces starvation, poverty and war over resources.
ACE Chief Executive Nelson Ogunshakin said: “The last days have brought together over 700 consulting engineers from around the world who have proposed critical engineering solutions to these issues.
“Sustainability is the most important issue facing humanity. Failure to act now will condemn many generations to come to prolonged hardships,” he said.
FIDIC intends to send an open letter to the governments attending Copenhagen, pleading for an agreement on climate change and offering examples of sustainable solutions.
