UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged leaders of the world's major economies including the United States to deliver on their commitments toward a $100 billion per year climate fund with less than six weeks to go before a U.N. climate summit, APA reports quoting Reuters.
Johnson and U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres hosted a roundtable of world leaders on Monday to address major gaps on emissions targets and climate finance.
"Too many major economies – some represented here today, some absent - are lagging too far behind," Johnson said. "I’ll stress that again - for this to be a success we need developed countries to find that $100 billion."
The closed-door meeting during the annual high-level week of the U.N. General Assembly includes leaders and representatives from a few dozen countries representing industrialized nations, emerging economies and vulnerable developing countries.
