United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres spoke at the 28th UNFCCC Conference of Parties in Dubai, saying that the burning of fossil fuels must be stopped entirely, not just reduced. The conference has adopted a “loss and damage fund” to help poor nations deal with climate-driven damages. Guterres urged fossil fuel companies to invest in renewable energy sources and for governments to regulate and tax industry profits. He emphasized the need for climate justice and greater support for developing countries affected by climate disasters. Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar of Pakistan joined world leaders at the summit, advocating for the immediate operationalisation of the new fund and emphasizing that the utilization of the fund should be separate from development funds and loans. He also expressed Pakistan’s focus on transitioning from coal-based power plants to renewable energy projects. The Prime Minister’s Office released a statement about his participation at the summit and his discussions with other leaders.
