By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize’s Prime Minister John Briceño and Foreign Minister Eamon Courtenay met with Barbados’ Prime Minister Mia Mottley during the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland.
“Belize and Barbados joined the urgent call for unswerving global solidarity and timely action for a just transition during this decade,” noted the Prime Minister on social media.
On Monday, the PM had called on developed countries to support the measures to stop climate change saying that the Caribbean, and Belize in particular, have a lot to lose if climate change continues its present course.
The Prime Minister said the Belize Barrier Reef, which is extremely important to Belize’s tourism industry, is dying because of climate change, and countries like Belize need the developed industrialized countries to step up.
“Where real positive impact on climate change can be trickled out to the developing and small island States is also reflected in the financial commitments of the developed industrial world,” posted the Prime Minister after discussing the financial ambitions for climate and nature in a panel discussion sponsored by the WWF – World Wildlife Fund at COP26.
