At the COP27 summit in Egypt yesterday, talks were underway to reach a new climate agreement.

The conference, held at the resort in Sharm el-Sheikh, stretched into an extra day as negotiators from nearly 200 countries struggled to reach a ‘loss and damage’ deal to help poorer countries hit by the crisis. consequences of global warming.

Third world nations claimed they should receive compensation from Western countries for damages such as the recent floods in Pakistan.

These countries released little of the heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere, they claimed.

Irish Environment Minister Eamon Ryan, one of the lead negotiators, said: ‘These negotiations will not work if one country is pitted against another. The only way it works is if we sit down together.”

The outcome of the 12-day event is seen as a test of global determination to tackle climate change and continue the work of the COP26 summit held in Glasgow last year.

A COP27 draft agreement released yesterday confirmed previous commitments, including the one in Glasgow, to limit global warming to 1.5°C.

But according to reports, there was little sign of the necessary ambition to implement the emissions reductions needed to meet that goal.

Earlier Frans Timmermans, head of climate policy of the European Union, warned that the EU is prepared to ‘walk away’ from the negotiations if the final agreement is not ambitious enough.

“These negotiations will not work if one country is pitted against another,” said Irish Environment Minister Eamon Ryan (pictured)
