“Maintaining the 1.5 degree commitment is critical to the future of our planet,” he wrote, adding: “we must do more.”

Even before the start of COP27, Rishi Sunak had called on world leaders “not to go back on the promise” to fight to limit temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius, which was decided at the previous climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland.

Rishi Sunak went to COP27, in Sharm el-Sheikh, after being strongly criticized for having initially announced that he would not go there due to his busy schedule in London.

Today, the COP27 adopted a resolution which mainly provides for the creation of a fund to finance the damages that “particularly vulnerable” countries are already suffering due to climate change.

The decision was unanimously adopted by the plenary assembly at the close of the annual UN climate conference held in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.
