Germany, Britain Urged To Support Climate Action

The nations of Britain and Germany have been urged to support climate action by paying for loss and damage for countries hit by climate change. This call was made during the three-day Petersberg Climate Dialogue, laying the groundwork for Cop28 in the UAE.

French President Emmanuel Macron is expected to host a summit next month on getting more money to the global south.

Germany’s Chancellor Olaf Scholz could use this week’s talks to build high-level support for the reform agenda, said Franklin Steves, a policy adviser at the think tank E3G and a former official at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

He said comments by Britain’s Development Minister Andrew Mitchell vowing to “transform international finance” were welcome.

Mr. Sunak and Britain’s Chancellor of the Exchequer Jeremy Hunt are “in theory supportive” but have not been visible in championing financial reform, Mr. Steves told The National.
