“The COP25 ended where 195 countries must unanimously agree on steps to follow. Without a doubt, great progress was achieved. But they are not enough in the face of the enormous risk and challenge we face as humanity for Climate Change and Global Warming. We need more ambition,” You have indicated in a message spread through your Twitter account.

Thus, the Chilean president stressed that among the great advances achieved are that “194 countries committed to more ambitious goals and 121 with Carbon Neutrality”, in addition to incorporating “protection of oceans and forests” and confirming the importance of ” gender and science. ”

The Group of Least Developed Countries (LDC) has expressed this Sunday that it feels “disappointed” because COP25 has not served to resolve “key issues.”

Although the parties have approved an agreement that includes the three issues for which Chile requested facilitation assistance from Spain, which includes climate ambition, loss and damage mechanisms and financing, they have failed to agree on the regulation of global markets for Carbon (Article 6), the only precept that remains to be developed from the rule book of the Paris Agreement.
