Statement By Patricia Espinosa: G7 Climate & Environment Ministers


May 20, 2021

G7 Climate & Environment
Ministers

Statement by Patricia Espinosa,
Executive Secretary, UN Climate Change

Today I
told G7 leaders that the decisions they make in the next few
weeks will have a major impact on whether nations achieve
success at COP26, make a truly green recovery from COVID-19,
and eventually reach the world’s long-term climate goals
under the Paris Agreement.

I once again reminded them
of their commitment to mobilize $100 billion annually for
developing nations — a commitment that has remained
outstanding for far too long — and called for a
wide-ranging, comprehensive and immediate package of
financial support for developing nations to address climate
change. With the climate emergency getting worse and
impacting vulnerable people throughout the world, this
decision simply cannot wait and must be made by the June G7
meeting in Cornwall,
UK.
