COP27 Reaches Breakthrough Agreement on New “Loss and Damage” Fund for Vulnerable Countries
UN Climate Change News, 20 November 2022 – The United Nations Climate Change Conference COP27 closed today with a breakthrough agreement to provide “loss and damage” funding for vulnerable countries hit hard by climate disasters.
“This outcome moves us forward,” said Simon Stiell, UN Climate Change Executive Secretary. “We have determined a way forward on a decades-long conversation on funding for loss and damage – deliberating over how we address the impacts on communities whose lives and livelihoods have been ruined by the very worst impacts of climate change.”
Set against a difficult geopolitical backdrop, COP27 resulted in countries delivering a package of decisions that reaffirmed their commitment to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The package also strengthened action by countries to cut greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the inevitable impacts of climate change, as well as boosting the support of finance, technology and capacity building needed by developing countries.
Creating a specific fund for loss and damage marked an important point of progress, with the issue added to the official agenda and adopted for the first time at COP27.
Governments took the ground-breaking decision to establish new funding arrangements, as well as a dedicated fund, to assist developing countries in responding to loss and damage. Governments also agreed to establish a ‘transitional committee’ to make recommendations on how to operationalize both the new funding arrangements and the fund at COP28 next year. The first meeting of the transitional committee is expected to take place before the end of March 2023.
Parties also agreed on the institutional arrangements to operationalize the Santiago Network for Loss and Damage, to catalyze technical assistance to developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change.

So the main global temperature has gone up only 1° since the beginning of the industrial revolution. So another words in the past couple of hundred years and this is supposed to be an emergency . So we have to mess up economies all over the world. Stop producing food stop getting cheap energy such as natural gas which is clean.
Now the Netherlands is trying to close down 3000 farms to take the land for a “habitat“ which means they want government was the land. Because there were “too many cows“ requiring fertilizer also.
Whole thing is a giant money redistribution scam plan for the beginning at least since the 80s based on fraud and it’s always a transfer of money from the poor to the rich.
