Prime Minister Kishida giving a speech at the COP26 summit meeting = Glasgow, UK (jointly) on the 2nd

[Glasgow Joint]Prime Minister Fumio Kishida will attend the summit meeting of the 26th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Climate Change Framework Convention (COP26) held in Glasgow, northern England on the 2nd to support global warming countermeasures in developing countries. Regarding funding, in addition to the 60 billion dollars announced so far, he said, “We are ready to provide up to 10 billion dollars (about 1.135 trillion yen) in new five years.” The aim is to appeal the attitude of contributing to decarbonization support in Asia and elsewhere.

However, he did not mention coal-fired power generation, which emits a particularly large amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and is being withdrawn one after another in the world. It is unclear whether the presidency of Britain, which calls for the total abolition of coal-fired power in developed countries, will be understood.
