Countries have been urged to strengthen their carbon-cutting targets by the end of 2022. This was announced in a draft agreement published at the COP26 Glasgow Climate Summit.
The document highlighted the need for vulnerable countries to be supported to cope with the deadly impacts of global warming.
However, critics say the draft document didn’t dwell deep enough into the issues of global warming, but still welcomed the 1.5 degree Celsius target.
This, as scientists have warned that keeping temperature spikes to 1.5 degrees Celsius would require global emissions to be reduced by 45 percent by 2030, and to zero overall by mid-century.
