Biden promises to double US contribution to climate finance

Biden promises to double US contribution to climate finance

– We doubled the contribution in April, he said, and now we double it again.

In April, it doubled from $2.8 billion to $5.7 billion, bringing its new promise to $11.4 billion.

“This will make the United States a leader in climate finance,” Biden said, emphasizing that he is working with Congress to achieve that goal.

Biden says the US contribution will help the world achieve the goal of the Global Climate Fund. He is asking other countries to commit to bigger contributions ahead of this fall’s climate summit in Glasgow.

The Secretary-General of the United Nations has rightly declared a red symbol for climateBiden says.

– Biden said to adhere to the goal of reducing temperature rise to 1.5 degrees, everyone must adhere to the climate summit, and noted that the world is rapidly approaching the abyss.

He pointed to droughts and floods, increasing fires and severe hurricanes around the world that kill and destroy billions.

The world’s high-income country decided in the Paris Agreement to create a global climate fund of $100 billion annually to help developing countries go green.

However, the rich countries did not fulfill this promise. The Secretary-General of the United Nations strongly criticized this before the United Nations General Assembly this week.

Not seeking the Cold War

Biden made it clear in his speech that the United States is now back at the negotiating table in international forums, referring, among other things, to the Paris Agreement and the World Health Organization.

He said that the United States wants to start a new era of “continuing diplomacy” as a result of the end of the war in Afghanistan, explaining that the use of weapons should be a last resort.

We are not looking for a new Cold War, or a world divided into blocks. The United States will work with all countries to resolve the challenges, although there are significant differences in other areasHe said, the day after UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned of a new Cold War if the United States and China could not cooperate.

Biden reiterated that the United States is ready to enter into nuclear negotiations with Iran, if the Iranians show their willingness to do so, and also said that he believes that the best solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a Palestinian state.

Contribute more to the Corona crisis

Biden also said that the United States will contribute more to the global fight against the Corona pandemic. So far, the United States has contributed $15 billion, and he said that the United States has so far sent 160 million doses of vaccine to more than 100 countries.

He stressed that the United States is now embarking on new and more urgent tasks such as the Corona crisis after its withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Today, many of our greatest fears are something that cannot be solved with weapons. Bombs and bullets cannot fight the Corona pandemic. “We need to act now and get the injections between our arms as quickly as possible,” Biden says.
