Mr. Sunak faces a severe test as developing nations seek “reparations” for extreme weather events caused by climate change, while the United Kingdom imposes draconian austerity measures and tax increases at home.

Mr. Sunak may potentially have a difficult encounter with his predecessor Boris Johnson, who is present at the summit, despite the fact that the prime minister insists there is “no hatchet to bury.”

Mr. Sunak, according to Downing Street, intends to conclude last year’s Cop26 conference in Glasgow with over £200 million in UK financing to safeguard forests and develop in “green” technologies.

Mr. Sunak’s attendance at the summit in the Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh, alongside world leaders such as U.S. President Joe Biden and French President Emmanuel Macron, is his first appearance on the international stage since becoming prime minister a month ago.

In his inaugural statement, the prime minister will assert that countries must adhere to their Glasgow promises if the world is to escape the worst effects of climate change by limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.The UK is handing over the baton on the COP summits to Egypt, having hosted the 26th gathering in Glasgow last year

Simultaneously, he will argue that the move away from fossil fuels has the potential to spur economic growth and create opportunities in the new green sectors of the future, while simultaneously cutting off funding for Russia’s conflict in Ukraine.

Mr. Sunak is anticipated to declare, “The globe gathered in Glasgow with a final opportunity to create a plan to limit global temperature rises to 1.5C.” Today’s question is: Can we muster the collective will to fulfill these promises?

‘I believe we can. By honoring the commitments we made in Glasgow, we can transform our fight against climate change into a global mission for the creation of new employment and sustainable economic growth.Mr Sunak could also have an awkward encounter with predecessor Boris Johnson, who is at the summit, although the premier insisted there is 'no hatchet to be buried'

And we can leave our children a planet that is greener and a brighter future. That is a legacy of which we may be proud.’

Prior to his nocturnal arrival in Sharm El-Sheikh, the Prime Minister expressed his desire for the United Kingdom to be a leader on the problem.

He told The Sun, “We led the world last year when it came to the Cop we hosted and accomplished some really important things; we need to solidify our leadership.”

In accordance with an arrangement between the Palace and former prime minister Liz Truss, he also paid homage to the King, who will not be present at the event.

He has exhibited extraordinary leadership on this matter for a very long period. Even though he will not be physically present, I am certain he will be there in spirit. We shall be guided by his influence and leadership,’ he said.

Mr. Sunak, according to Downing Street, will announce an additional £65.5million for the clean energy innovation facility, which provides grants to researchers and scientists in developing countries working on clean technologies, such as biomass-powered refrigeration in India and lithium-ion batteries in Nigeria.

As Mr. Sunak forms a new group to track deforestation promises made in Glasgow, the United Kingdom is also promising £90 million to the conservation of the Congo Basin rainforest and £65 million to indigenous and local forest communities.

Prior to Chancellor Jeremy Hunt’s November 17 autumn statement, Mr. Sunak had argued that his top goal was to fix the estimated £60 billion black hole in the public finances before departing for Egypt.

As a result of criticism from inside his own party and from environmentalists who questioned his dedication to the net-zero objective, he was compelled to do what the opposition termed a “screeching U-turn.”

Ed Miliband, the shadow secretary for climate change for Labour, stated that the Prime Minister should abandon plans to give new licenses for North Sea drilling and eliminate the government’s hostility to onshore wind.

Rishi Sunak is the man who had to be dragged kicking and screaming to Cop, thus his claim to climate leadership is ridiculous. He stated that Rishi Sunak is a fossil fuel prime minister in an age of renewable energy.

The most recent session of United Nations climate talks takes place against a backdrop of destructive extreme weather and an energy and cost-of-living crises caused by President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

The United Nations has issued a warning that, based on the most recent climate action plans of the world’s nations, there is now no realistic method to fulfill the 1.5C goal designed to avert the worst effects of global warming.

The UN has cautioned that wealthy nations are failing to provide the necessary funds to assist developing nations adapt to a changing climate and prosper sustainably.
