G20 Summit 2023 LIVE Updates: ‘One Earth’ Session, The Focus On Climate Action

Currently, at the G20 Summit in New Delhi, global leaders are engaged in discussions regarding strategies to tackle the challenges presented by climate change. Developing nations argue that wealthier countries, considering their significant historical emissions, should bear greater responsibility for reducing emissions. They should also provide the necessary resources, including financial assistance and technology, to aid developing and vulnerable nations in transitioning to clean energy and adapting to climate change.

In anticipation of the summit, a groundbreaking assessment by the United Nations has revealed that countries are largely falling short of meeting their emission reduction commitments. This failure puts the planet on a dangerous trajectory towards catastrophic global warming. The report, which was released on Friday, emphasizes that governments must swiftly identify ways to reduce billions of tons of carbon dioxide if they wish to prevent global warming from exceeding 1.5 degrees Celsius by the end of the decade.
