COP27 President Says Climate Compensation on Official Summit Agenda

HeadlineNov 07, 2022

On Sunday, COP27 president and Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said this year’s talks will for the first time focus on how rich nations should compensate countries in the Global South for the unfolding climate catastrophe.

Sameh Shoukry: “Inclusion of this agenda reflects a sense of solidarity and empathy with the suffering of the victims of climate-induced disasters. And to this end, we all owe a debt of gratitude to activists and civil society organizations who have persistently demanded a space to discuss funding for loss and damage.”
