Good Morning.

I’m delighted to see all of you here, coming together to address climate change, one of the most critical challenges facing our planet. You gather in this beautiful town at an auspicious time, as later this year the world’s leaders will gather in Paris to develop a new global strategy to address climate change.

My message today is simple: you play an important role in resolving this global problem. Your engagement spurs action. Your experience creates practical solutions and sound policies. Your leadership builds the political will to make hard decisions. And the United States stands behind your efforts.

Why? To put it simply, climate change doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, young or old. It doesn’t care about race, ethnicity, religion, political affiliation, or nationality. It affects every single person on the planet.

On October 12th 2013, in the village of Shipkovica, the USAID Small Business Expansion Project and the Municipality of Tetovo celebrated International Day of Rural Women with an event that promoted employment opportunities for the rural women of Polog. For example, a professional herb collector can earn double the national average salary (approximately $900) for 8-10 months per year. Depending on the number of existing collection facilities, it is estimated that some 500 rural women from Polog could benefit financially from herb collection.
