World leaders call for more action and inclusion of all countries for cleaner, greener planet

World leaders called for more action and inclusion of all countries in the global drive towards a cleaner and greener planet at a climate summit hosted virtually by South Korea.

The two-day summit ended yesterday is the second of its kind following the inaugural meeting held in Copenhagen in 2018, and is focused on public-private partnerships, especially in developing countries.

South Korea, which recently announced plans to cut finance for international coal projects, is seeking a bigger role in the global initiative to go green.

Advanced nations have laid out ambitious emissions-cutting goals in recent months, as well as plans to ultimately go carbon neutral by 2050.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called on the countries to phase out their dependence on fossil fuels, warning that the climate crisis is threatening people’s lives and the economy as much as the Covid-19 pandemic.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said countries must now deliver on their green pledges.

World leaders committed under the 2015 Paris accord to keep the global temperature increase to under two degrees Celsius – and ideally closer to 1.5°C – by 2050.
