UN-Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said climate-related destruction was hitting the planet in a row, especially with the heat waves in Europe, stressing the need for urgent action to avert a disaster.

Guterres confirmed at the two-day Abu Dhabi climate meeting to prepare for the New York climate summit in September that the world is facing a serious climate emergency.

He warned that the devastating climate gaps are moving increasingly, and climate change is progressing faster than the world’s leading scientists have predicted. “It is beyond our efforts to address them. Climate change is moving faster than we are.”

“Each week brings new climate-related destruction, which includes floods, droughts, heatwaves, forest fires and severe storms,” ​​Guterres said.

Luis Alfonso de Alba, the UN special envoy, said the meeting in Abu Dhabi, with the participation of the government and civil society from dozens of countries, would be chosen from among 100 climate protection proposals. “I think the important thing is to identify proposals that have an impact,” he said.

The Secretary-General expressed his hope that the Paris agreement would reduce harmful emissions will help in global warming reduction.

“But we know that even if the promises of Paris are fully honored, we are still facing a rise in temperature by at least three degrees by the end of the century,” he said.

French Minister of State for Environmental and Mass Transit, who participated in the Abu Dhabi meeting, called for mobilizing private funding to support climate programs and actions.

“What we have to do is mobilize more private capital rather than invest private funds in coal projects, which should be invested in renewable energy,” she told AFP. She called on developed countries to meet their commitments under the Paris agreement to transfer $ 100 billion to developing countries.
