Written by Olarotimi Oshin on November 7, 2022
The fight against climate change can become “a global mission for new jobs and clean growth”, Rishi Sunak will tell world leaders at the COP27 summit.
The prime minister will also say it is essential nations stick to commitments made at COP26 in Glasgow a year ago.
He will unveil more than £200m funding to protect forests and for green technologies in developing nations.
BBC reports that Mr Sunak is making his first outing on the international stage in Egypt after becoming prime minister last month.
He arrived in Sharm el-Sheikh on Sunday night and will join other world leaders at the UN summit, including US President Joe Biden and France’s Emmanuel Macron.
