"Four in five people want their governments to take stronger action to tackle climate change, according to a United Nations survey.

The UN Development Programme (UNDP), which published the poll on Thursday, said that 72 per cent of people across the 77 countries surveyed said they supported a quick transition from fossil fuels to clean energy.

The Peoples’ Climate Vote 2024, revealed that 86 per cent want to see their countries set aside geopolitical differences and work together on climate change.

More than 75,000 people speaking 87 different languages were asked 15 questions on climate change for the survey, which was conducted for the UN Development Programme (UNDP) with the University of Oxford, UK and GeoPoll."
