Less than 24 hours before the closing of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP27), Guterres stressed that “we are at the crucial moment of the negotiations.”
Given the discrepancies between North and South and between developed and emerging economies, he called for offering the climate actions that people and the planet need.
This is no time for finger pointing.

In his speech, the UN leader warned of the negative impact that the growing and high global emissions cause in economies and societies.
In this sense, he demanded financial aid for vulnerable and developing countries, for the damages caused by climate change.
“We cannot continue to deny justice to those who have contributed the least to the climate crisis and are the most harmed,” he said.
Guterres proposed granting 100,000 million dollars to these nations, to boost their progress and mobilize technical support towards clean energy and greater resilience.
“The world burns and drowns before our eyes. I urge all parties to show that they see and understand this. Now is the time for solidarity, ”he stressed.
