“I emphasized the need to double adaptation support to $40 billion dollars a year by 2025. Climate destruction is happening now. People are suffering now. Which brings me to my fourth point: loss and damage. It is high time for a serious discussion and meaningful action on this issue. I hope COP27 in Egypt will take it up, as a matter of climate justice, international solidarity and building trust.”

“There are different levels of development and different levels of dependency on fossil fuels, and so we need the cooperation between the two, though the reason of the coalitions I mentioned, for developed countries to support emerging economies to be able to accelerate their own reduction of emissions. On the other hand, we have been working hard to create the conditions for adaptation to be taken seriously by developed countries and we are discussing with Egypt on the absolute need to have loss and damage seriously in the COP 27.”

9. SOUNDBITE (English) António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations:
“We need both. Before, there was only concern with mitigation. We have strongly advocated to have adaptation at the same level as mitigation, the same level of climate finance both for mitigation and adaptation. Without mitigation, disasters will be even bigger; and without adaptation, countries will not be able to cope with the impacts of the disasters and people will suffer even more.”

STORYLINE
Following a Leader’s Roundtable on Climate Action, Secretary-General António Guterres TODAY (21 Sep) told reporters, “the fossil fuel industry is killing us, and leaders are out of step with their people, who are crying out for urgent climate action.”

In his conversation with heads of state and other world leaders, Guterres said he emphasized “the need to double adaptation support to $40 billion dollars a year by 2025.”

He said, “climate destruction is happening now. People are suffering now” and added that it was “high time for a serious discussion and meaningful action” on loss and damage.”

The Secretary-General said, “there are different levels of development and different levels of dependency on fossil fuels, and so we need the cooperation between the two, though the reason of the coalitions I mentioned, for developed countries to support emerging economies to be able to accelerate their own reduction of emissions.”

On the other hand, he said, “we have been working hard to create the conditions for adaptation to be taken seriously by developed countries and we are discussing with Egypt on the absolute need to have loss and damage seriously in the COP 27.”

Guterres said, “we have strongly advocated to have adaptation at the same level as mitigation, the same level of climate finance both for mitigation and adaptation. Without mitigation, disasters will be even bigger; and without adaptation, countries will not be able to cope with the impacts of the disasters and people will suffer even more.”
