Compromisso falhado de $100.000m por ano
November 6, 2022 - November 18, 2022 -
Os países ricos não cumpriram a promessa de dedicar $100.000 milhões
por ano a ajudar os países em desenvolvimento a enfrentar a mudança
climática, o que poderá dominar a cimeira climática COP27 no Egipto.
In 2009, developed countries most responsible for global warming pledged to provide $100 billion per year by 2020 to help developing nations deal with its consequences.
The commitment has still not been met, generating mistrust and reluctance among some developing nations to accelerate their emissions reductions.
Rich countries fell $16.7 billion short of the target in 2020 and have signalled that it won't be met until 2023.
In addition to continued short fallings on the 2009 financial commitments, developed countries blocked the creation of a “loss and damage fund” to help those affected by climate crisis-related disasters.
Reuters reported last month that Egypt would work to make loss and damage a key part of the Cop27 agenda.
COP27 is the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference – this year being held in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, from November 6 to November 18.
