The official Emirates News Agency WAM announced on Sunday that Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, president of the United Arab Emirates, will go to the COP27 UN climate conference in Egypt. The UN climate conference will begin on Sunday and last until November 18 in Sharm el-Sheikh, an Egyptian coastal town.
In order to address the threats posed by climate change, senior experts, government representatives, heads of state, and other key decision-makers from 190 countries will assemble in the Red Sea resort city. At least 90 heads of state are anticipated to attend, totaling more than 35,000 attendees. The COP27 conference takes place at a time when action is urgently required.
According to a recent survey, less than half of those surveyed believed that climate change would pose a serious threat to their countries within the next 20 years, indicating that concern about it has decreased globally over the past year. The ecological cost of climate change is rising globally despite waning concern.
Another study by the Institute for Economics and Peace in 228 nations and territories discovered that 750 million people worldwide are now affected by climate change, undernourishment, and rising inflation rates as a result of Russia’s war in Ukraine, which already had a significant impact on global food security.
More than 1.4 billion people in 83 countries experienced extreme water stress, with more than 20% of the population lacking access to clean drinking water, according to the study. By 2040, several European nations, including those in Italy, the Netherlands, Greece, and Portugal, are anticipated to face severe clean water shortages. According to the report, North Africa, the Middle East, and sub-Saharan Africa will be the areas most affected by water shortages.
