There is clearly a breakdown in trust between North and South and between developed and emerging economies: Guterres


Sharm El-Sheikh 鈥 UN Secretary-General Ant贸nio Guterres said that there is clearly a breakdown in trust between North and South and between developed and emerging economies, with just 24 hours before the closure of the COP27.

Guterres made his remarks in a statement on Thursday evening, saying that COP27 Parties “remain divided on a number of significant issues鈥 such as the loss and damage issue, achieving the goal of the 1.5 target and filling the emission gap, and climate finance.

鈥淲e are at crunch time in the negotiations. This is no time for finger-pointing. I am here to appeal to all parties to rise to this moment and the greatest challenge facing humanity,鈥 Guterres noted.

The UN Secretary-General appealed to the parties to act in three critical areas: First, the most effective way to rebuild trust is by finding an ambitious and credible agreement on loss and damage and financial support to developing countries.
