Demand for G20 to ‘step up’ with tougher emissions reduction targets and financial aid for poorest
Developing countries are calling on the G20 group of advanced economies to come forward urgently with stiffer targets on greenhouse gas emissions, and financial aid, to make this month’s UN Cop26 climate summit a success.
Simon Stiell, climate and environment minister of Grenada, said: “All eyes are now on the G20. They must step up. There is a significant gap between what has been pledged [on cutting emissions] and what is needed – the big question is how we treat that gap.”
