International Commitment to Support Global Anti-Climate Change Initiatives Announced at COP27

Affluent nations vow to assist less fortunate ones in curbing emissions.

During the recent conclusion of the United Nations Climate Change Conference, known as COP27, countries participating in the event reaffirmed their dedication to lowering worldwide emissions and mitigating the impact of global climate change. A new pact was signed by over 200 nations to establish a panel aimed at aiding poorer nations in their endeavors against climate change.

});

UN Secretary-General António Guterres expressed, in a video message from the conference, “This COP has taken a crucial stride towards fairness. I appreciate the establishment of a fund for loss and damage.”

In a statement, John Kerry, the US special presidential envoy for climate change, welcomed the decision made at COP27 to set up mechanisms to address the severe consequences of climate change on vulnerable populations globally through a fund that emphasizes immediate support for particularly susceptible countries in managing climate impacts.

Guterres emphasized, “However, we must acknowledge our planet’s critical state. It is imperative to significantly decrease emissions now – a pressing matter not adequately addressed at this COP. While a fund for loss and damage is vital, it remains insufficient when the climate crisis jeopardizes the existence of small island states or transforms entire African nations into deserts.”

Various delegates echoed the frustration expressed by Guterres regarding the absence of a solid plan to reduce emissions.

In a speech, British politician and former COP26 representative Alok Sharma remarked, “The essential peaking of emissions before 2025 per scientific recommendations? Not addressed in this document. Clear steps towards reducing coal use? Absent. A firm commitment to phasing out all fossil fuels? Nowhere to be found in this pact.”
