Reuters exclusively reports Indonesia’s Jokowi urges developed countries to commit to climate funding goals

Reuters exclusively reported that Indonesian President Joko Widodo urged developed countries to commit to their pledge to provide financing for poorer countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at this month’s UN climate conference. Rich countries have missed a target to raise $100 billion a year to support developing countries in their climate action projects, which experts say could break down trust at the Oct. 31 – Nov. 12 COP26 conference in the Scottish city of Glasgow. Indonesia, the world’s eighth-biggest greenhouse gas emitter, has pledged to cut back its carbon emissions to 29% below business-as-usual by its own efforts, but with the help of international funding and transfer of technology, it believes it could increase the reduction to up to 41%.
