Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister, is in Egypt right now to take part in the “Sharm El-Sheikh Climate Implementation Summit”. As part of the 27th UN Climate Change Conference, this conference is taking place.
The UN Secretary General’s roundtable to introduce the “Early Warning Systems for Executive Action Plan” and the “Middle East Green Initiative Summit,” which is being held today and is being hosted by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, are two other high-level events in which the Prime Minister will speak.
The Prime Minister and his Norwegian counterpart will co-chair a high-level roundtable discussion on “Climate Change and the Sustainability of Vulnerable Communities” tomorrow at the request of the Egyptian Presidency of COP-27.
He is also scheduled to hold bilateral meetings with several world leaders on the margins of the summit.
COP-27 is taking place when the severe negative effects of climate change are being felt by millions of people worldwide, including millions in Pakistan.
In the meantime, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif stated in a tweet that he will push the globe to fulfill its commitment to climate finance and the loss and damage fund in his capacity as Chair of the G-77. He claimed that the COP-27 conference taking place in Egypt might mark a turning point in the struggle against climate change and global warming.
The Prime Minister claimed that this year’s harsh weather in Pakistan and the Horn of Africa demonstrated the globalization of climate change. He claimed that without financial assistance, developing nations would continue to face several risks from climate change.
The Prime Minister claimed that our evaluation of Pakistan’s post-disaster needs had revealed that state debt, escalating global energy, and food costs, and a lack of access to adaptation funds might all hinder Pakistan’s path to recovery and rehabilitation. He asserted that the world needs to use Pakistan as a case study and that we are requesting climate justice.
