    1. Belize, like other SIDS, is on the frontline of a climate crisis for which we are not responsible. Belize incurs annual losses of close to 4 percent of GDP due to natural disasters. Therefore, we felt an obligation to put forward an ambitious revised Nationally Determined Contribution.
    2. The Common Framework and Debt Service Suspension Initiative failed to offer forbearance to most middle-income SIDS, including Belize, who were ineligible despite our debt unsustainability. At the same time, most of our countries had no recourse to concessionary financing to fund the immediate health response.
    3. For a small island andlow-lying coastal State like Belize, which three days ago celebrated forty years of political Independence, the world today is hostile and precarious. No one can deny that the planet is getting hotter.

    1. We are witnessing the growingclimate and environmental crisis. Recently in Geneva, the High Commissioner for Human Rights presented very concerning findings about global human rights situation in the context of the environment. Climate change, pollution and loss of biodiversity will constitute by far the most serious challenge for human rights in our era, said the High Commissionaire. In that,she clearly recognized human activity as one of the factorsand the lack of proper activitiesas another. Full implementation of 2030 Agenda and Paris Climate Agreement are crucial for better recovery from the pandemic and preparation of the world for future systemic shocks. That is why it is particularly important that in preparations for the Summit and Conference in Glasgow in November this year, all countries mobilise an additional level of ambition for achieving long-term goals for reducing global warming. Although its share in the global emissions is tiny, in December 2020 Montenegro additionally increased its climate ambition,confirming thus the strong and persistent commitment to adequate treatment of climate challenges. We expect that further activitieson the national level will open the space for new and more ambitious breakthroughs. That is why it is exceptionally important to integrate the components of action thatwill be based on human rights, both when new climate ambitions are set, and when new global biodiversity framework is defined

    1. Yet, our countries are among the lowest emitters of greenhouse gas emissions, contributing the least to the harmful and destructive effects of Climate Change.This is not only unfair; it is unjust

      Unjust for small countries to bear the brunt of climate change, when they are the lowest emitters of emissions

    2. Mr President, we hold out similar hope that the world’s worst emitters of greenhouse gases that are threatening the welfare of all mankind, will also come to the realization that in the end it will profit them little to emerge king over a world of dust

      Again, heavy language (king over a world of dust) for rich countries

    3. Belatedly, the rich have come to the realization thaton our one Earth,they need the cooperation of the poor to save themselves

    1. It was the UK government that set the strike price for the private sector to come in and transform our country into the Saudi Arabia of wind,and only yesterday the UK’s first sovereign green bond raised £10 billion on the markets,from hard-headed investors who want to make money.And these investments will not only help the countries of the world to tackle climate change:they will produce millions and millions of high wage, high skill jobs,and today’s workforce and the next generation will have the extra satisfaction of knowing that they are not only doing something useful-such as providing clean energy -but helping to save the planet at the same time.And every day green start-ups are producing new ideas,from feeding seaweed to cows to restrain their traditional signs of digestive approval

      Private-public partnership

    2. And that’s why two years ago I committed that the UK would provide £11.6 billion to help the rest of the world to tackle climate changeand in spite of all the pressures on finances caused by Covid, we have kept that promise to the letter.And I am so pleased and encouraged by some of the pledges we have heard here at UNGA,including from Denmark, and now a very substantial commitment from the US that brings us within touching distance of the $100 billion pledge.

      Climate and development assistance

    3. we need to restore the natural balance,we need to halt and reverse the loss of trees and biodiversity by 2030,and that is why we in the UK are committed to beautifying the landscape,

      Relevance of nature

    4. But the market in EVs in the UK is now growing at an extraordinary pace -maybe two thirds every year -and Nissan is sufficiently confident to invest £1 billion in a new EV factory and a gigafactory for the batteries. And that is because we have set a hard deadline for the sale of new hydrocarbon ICEs of 2030and again we call on the world to come together to drive this market so that by 2040there are only zero emission vehicles on sale anywhere in the world.And you can make these cuts in pollution while driving jobs and growth:

      linking economy and climate change

    5. When I was a kid we produced almost 80 per cent of our electricity from coal;that is now down to two per cent or lessand will be gone altogether by 2024.We have put in great forests of beautiful wind turbines on the drowned prairies of Doggerland beneath the North Sea.In factwe produce so much offshore wind that I am thinking of changing my name to Boreas Johnson in honour of the North Wind.And I know that we are ambitious in asking the developing world to end the use of coal power by 2040and for the developed world to do so by 2030,but the experience of the UK shows that it can be doneand I thank President Xi for what he has done to end China’s international financing of coal and I hope China will now go further and phase out the domestic use of coal as well
    6. 6adding to the budget of carbon in the atmosphere,no longer thickening that invisible quilt that is warming the planet,and it is fantastic that we now have countries representing 70 per cent of the world’s GDP committed to this objective.But if we are to stave off these hikes in temperature we must go further and faster –we need all countries to step up andcommit to very substantial reductions by 2030 -and I passionately believe that we can do it by making commitments in four areas –coal, cars, cash and trees.I am not one of those environmentalists who takes a moral pleasure in excoriating humanity for its excess.I don’t see the green movement as a pretext for a wholesale assault on capitalism.
    7. And we are not talking about stopping the rise in temperatures -it is alas too late for that -but to restrain that growth, as I say, to 1.5 degrees.And that means we need to pledge collectively to achieve carbon neutrality –net zero –by the middle of the century.And that will be an amazing momentif we can do itbecause it will mean that for the first time in centuries humanity is no longer
    8. And if we keep on the current track then the temperatures will go up by 2.7 degrees or more by the end of the century.And never mind what that will do to the ice floes:we will see desertification, drought, crop failure, and mass movements of humanity on a scale not seen before,not because of some unforeseen natural event or disasterbut because of us,because of what we are doing now.
    9. We must limit the rise in temperatures –whose appalling effects were visible even this summer –to 1.5 degrees.We must come together in a collective coming of age. We must show we have the maturity and wisdom to act. And we can.Even in this feckless youth we have harnessed clean energy from wind and wave and sun.We have released energy from within the atom itselfand from hydrogen, and we have found ways to store that energy in increasingly capacious batteries and even in molten salt.We have the tools for a green industrial revolution

      Glasgow

    10. And that is why the Glasgow COP26 summit is the turning point for humanity.

      Turning to the UK's priority

Bien que l'Accord de Paris eût constitué une réalisation historique, nous nous devons de reconnaitre que les efforts consentis ne sont pas à la hauteur des espoirs nés à la suite de la COP21. En raison de leur vulnérabilité climatique, la communauté internationale doit accompagner les pays en voie de développement afin qu'il puisse bénéficier du transfert de technologie, de l'expertise mais également des financements appropriés.

    1. We have anopportunity to dothings right: We must align our efforts with our roadmap, the 2030 Agenda. We must invest in the green transition. We mustinvest in people, women and girls in particular. And we must fulfil the promiseofthe SDGs, to leave no one behind
    2. The Ocean Panel members have made a commitmentto sustainably manage all of their ocean areas by 2025. That isone third of the world ́s exclusive economic zones.This is a bold target. But our ambition is even bolder:We call on all ocean and coastal states to make a similar commitment by2030.
    3. Together, we will work to limit temperature increase to 1.5 degrees, in line with the goal of the Paris Agreement.

    1. Because ecological transition entails radical changes that will have a very directimpact on people,on their jobs, andon consumer habits. This is why we are not only leading a Just Recovery project to overcome the economic crisis. We are also committed to a just transition. This commitment stems from our absolute conviction that this is the most effective way of achieving new levels ofprogress and wellbeing.
    2. By 2030, 74% of the electricity we generate,and 42% of the total energy we consume, will come from renewable sources. And we have just recently approvedan ambitious ClimateChangeand Energy Transition Act
    3. It is also the time for us to agree on a new world framework for the protection ofbiodiversity that goes beyond the goals set for 2020. In this regard, I would like tomention that this year is the 30thanniversary of the Madrid Protocol on Environmental Protection of the Antarctic Treaty. This Protocol represented a major step forward in protecting the Antarcticenvironment and its dependent ecosystems.
    4. One of the main challenges of COP26 is to step up our ambition in terms of climatefinancing and, in particular, in terms of adaptation. We must honour the commitments adopted on the basis of the Paris Agreement and significantly raise the bar for futurecommitments. Spain will contribute to this goal by allocating 30 million euros tothe Adaptation Fund in 2022, and we will work to ensure the success of the GlasgowCOP26.
    5. I am proud to saythat Spain and the European Union are leading by example, and represent the bloc of countries with the most ambitious Nationally DeterminedContributions.
    1. We place great hope in the regional “C5+” dialogue frameworks with major extra-regional actors. In such partnerships, we emphasize Central Asia’s water-related challenges, including water scarcity, degrading quality and inefficient use. Our region’s water security is inextricably linked with energy, food and environment
    2. In response, Kazakhstan intends to achievecarbon neutrality by 2060.We are launching a national 2050 low carbon development strategynext month to reduce GDP energy intensity by 50% from 2008 levels
    3. I will focus today first and foremost on the triple threatwe face together: COVID-19 recovery; the Climate crisis; and the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan.
