COP26: UK assigns champion to help nations with climate

COP26: UK assigns champion to help nations with climate : Prime Minister Boris Johnson has named Anne-Marie Trevelyan as the UK’s International Champion on Adaptation and Resilience for the COP26 Presidency.

The former Secretary of State for International Development’s duty will be to move forward global ambition & action to help countries on the frontline of climate change to adjust to its impacts and develop resilience.

Developing nations are specifically susceptible to climate change and not as equipped to prepare for and react to the effects of rising global temperatures, such as extreme weather situations like floods, droughts and wildfires & slow-onset crises like rising sea levels and desertification.

The World Bank forecasts, that with no action, climate change may push over 100 million people in developing countries below the poverty line by 2030.

Ms Trevelyan will interconnect with the governments of the countries most affected by climate change and prompt support from the international community & private sector.

COP26 President Alok Sharma stated: “I warmly welcome Anne-Marie Trevelyan to the role of Adaptation and Resilience Champion as we mark the crucial milestone of a year to go until COP26.

“Her wealth of insight into international development will be invaluable in putting adaptation and resilience at the heart of our efforts to create a fairer, greener and more resilient global economy.”
