Last year’s COP 26 saw developed countries pledging to cut back on fossil fuels, end deforestation, and provide US$100 billion to developing countries to finance climate change. Since then, global temperatures have risen 1.1°C and are set to rise another 10% by 2030, and only 24 out of 193 countries have strengthened their carbon-cutting plans, with some even rolling back on their commitments. As global leaders gather for COP 27 this month, these commitments and other pertinent questions like the following come to the fore:
• What will climate change impact be on the least developed countries, and how will they be compensated for the damage?
• How can private investments be channelled more effectively towards a low-carbon economy?
• What role can financial hubs like Singapore play in assisting the world to avert a climate catastrophe?
