“We cannot ignore the race to resilience in our race to zero,” says Dr. Mahmoud Mohieldin, UN Climate Change High-Level Champion for Egypt. Developing countries will need $1 trillion a year in external financing by 2030 to cut emissions, boost resilience, restore land, and repair damage caused by increasingly destructive climate events, according to a report released by organizers of the United Nations Climate Summit (COP27). Total investment in developing countries will require $2.4 trillion by 2030, a sum beyond government budgets. Climate finance by the private sector, both foreign and domestic, is key to solving today’s development challenges. According to the report, the current investment is around $500 million. The report was jointly funded by hosts Egypt and the United Kingdom.

  1. Dan –

    Thoroughly enjoyed your chat with Michael Ham of WILD ORCHARD ORGANIC REGENERATIVE TEAS. You two made the ‘details’ of Organic Regenerative and the WHYS of taste clearer than I’ve ever heard before! Our Londoner, Internationally Acclaimed Couture Fashion-Forward Designer Darling, NINA MORGAN-JONES, LOVES her Organic Teas by the CUPFULS DAILY … “a 5- 6 cups a day habit” and after enjoying WILD ORCHARD, “Michael’s Wild Orchard Organic Tea has pure provenance, superior & strong organic teas from Jeju Island … now they’re my favorites!”

    O’s UP!

    To Your Health … ALWAYS!
