At the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, the calls for the restructuring of multilateral development banks are echoing through the halls, with the hopes that with reforms, finance will flow more readily to lower-income countries to allow them to green their economies and help their populations adapt to the changing world. In the 12th episode of the COPcast, Devex sat down with Phyllis Cuttino, the new president and CEO of the Climate Reality Project, who emphasized one reform in particular: A switch up in leadership at the World Bank. "Davis Malpass ... has a past where he has denied climate science and I think that makes him unsuitable to lead the World Bank at this time," she said, adding that the bank also needs to commit to only financing fossil fuel projects in the "most extraordinary of circumstances."

Today on Sojourner Truth we discuss the UN Climate Summit held in Egypt, or Cop 27, that culminated Sunday November 20th after two weeks of arduous negotiations. This victory is a direct result of mounting pressure from global civil society organizations present in Sharm el-Sheikh and in cities and capitals around the world, combined with strong leadership, 30 years in the making. A breakthrough deal is the establishment of a loss and damages fund to help poorest countries most impacted by climate change. Rich countries are agreeing to contribute to this fund but what will this actually look like? It will likely still be several years before the fund exists. Major lingering questions include: who would oversee the fund, how the money would be dispersed – and to whom. Many countries said they felt pressured to give up on tougher commitments for limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius in order for the landmark deal on the loss and damage fund to go through. And the richest countries largely contributing to fossil fuel pollution, made no real commitments to curb their use, in fact the loss and damage funds deal also included a reference to "low-emissions energy," raising concern among some that it opened the door to the growing use of natural gas - a fossil fuel that leads to both carbon dioxide and methane emissions. Joining us to discuss and contextualize the gains and concessions that took place at Cop 27 are, Shereen Talaat is Co-director and one of the founders of The Arab Watch Regional Coalition for Just Development that covering issues in the Middle East and North Africa, Tina Gerhardt, journalist and Cop 27 correspondent covering the UN conference for The Nation magazine and Luiz Vieira coordinator for the Bretton Woods Project.

 A historic deal was struck at the UN's COP27 summit at Sharm el- Sheikh that will see rich nations pay poorer countries for the damage and economic losses caused by climate change. It ended almost 30 years of waiting by nations facing huge climate impacts. But developed nations left dissatisfied over progress on cutting fossil fuels. During the Sharm climate conference, Yosef Abramowitz, a green energy entrepreneur, smashed tablets atop Jebel Musa in Egypt, thought by many to be the site of Mount Sinai, to symbolize Israel's and the world's failure to protect the planet and the lack of action on climate change. KAN's Mark Weiss asked him why he made such a dramatic protest.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

In de podcast legt ze uit waarom het nu niet lukte om nieuwe afspraken te maken. Op de top werd wél iets besloten waar ontwikkelingslanden al jaren om vroegen.

Extreme weather devastated Sierra Leone's capital city of Freetown in 2017 when torrential rains led to landslides that killed over 1,000 people. Now the city's population is grappling with temperature increases and population swells due to people migrating from rural areas as erratic rainfall makes subsistence farming less sustainable.

I årenes løb er FN's såkaldte Conference of the Parties eller COP blevet afholdt i byer over hele verden – og omgivelserne og omstændighederne har hver gang haft en betydning. For forhandlingerne og for resultatet. Sådan kan det meget vel også gå i år. Jeg taler med en af vores udsendte til Sharm el-Sheikh, Tore Keller, om det klimatopmøde, der gerne skulle ende med en tekst i denne weekend. Vi taler også om litteraturpriser. Om en, der fik en, Solvej Balle, der i starten af måneden modtog Nordisk Råds Litteraturpris. Det var samme dag, som der var folketingsvalg, og vi fik derfor ikke snakket om hende her. Heldigvis udkommer den 18. november fjerde bind af monsterværket Udregning af rumfang. Litteraturanmelder Lone Nikolajsen hylder. Og så skal vi tale om nogle andre, der ikke kan modtage priser for dansk litteratur, fordi de ikke er danske nok – for eksempel fordi de ikke i første omgang har skrevet bogen på dansk. Vi må have en bredere definition af, hvad dansk litteratur er, siger Lone Nikolajsen. Rune Lykkeberg er også forbi. Denne gang med en optur over, at det ikke løb løbsk, da et missil i denne uge ramte en landsby i Polen og dræbte to mennesker. Og når jeg nu har ham, vil jeg gerne vide, hvorfor Information har besluttet sig for ikke at skrive en eneste linje om det VM, der i denne weekend går i gang i Qatar.

Welcome to The Times of Israel's Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what's happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday. Knesset correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn and health and science reporter Nathan Jeffay join host Jessica Steinberg for today's podcast. Keller-Lynn talks about Tuesday's swearing-in of the 25th Knesset, with newcomers elated by their wins and the opposition heralding the end of democracy, with concerns over a lack of unity in the government. Jeffay speaks about a Hebrew University study that examines plummeting sperm counts worldwide, which could point to a wider decline in aspects of men's health. Keller-Lynn also discusses the lack of outside activists at the ongoing United Nations Climate Conference COP27 in Egypt's Sharm el Sheikh, part of the Egyptian efforts to quash the usual protests. Jeffay looks at a new technology under trial, which offers a fuller report on the DNA of tumors. Discussed articles include: Far-right vows upped security under new gov't; Liberman warns of ‘ayatollah regime' Sperm counts worldwide have plunged 62% in under 50 years, Israeli-led study finds Egyptians keep tight leash on climate confab, muffling traditional din of protests Israeli hospital: New tech gave instant DNA info on tumors, jump-starts treatment Subscribe to The Times of Israel Daily Briefing on iTunes, Spotify, PlayerFM, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Cop27 got off to a difficult start last week. Attendees struggled with a lack of food and drink, civil society group events were curtailed, and more than 600 fossil fuel lobbyists hit the conference halls – more than the delegations of many of the most vulnerable countries combined. As we head into the second week, Madeleine Finlay hears from biodiversity reporter Patrick Greenfield about what it's been like in Sharm el-Sheikh, and from environment editor Fiona Harvey about what's happened so far and whether much progress is likely to be made in the final days of negotiations.

This week, Alan, Quinta, and Scott were joined by Brookings Institution Middle East expert Natan Sachs to talk over the week's big (non-U.S. election) national security news, including:“Bibi Got Back.” Last week, an unprecedented fifth national election in the last four years returned controversial former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to power, at the head of a coalition including several far-right nationalist parties. What does his return to office mean for the future of Israel and the region? And its relations with the United States?“COP Out.” The United Nations' 27th annual Convention of Parties (also known as “COP27”) is playing host to world leaders in Sharm-al-Sheikh, Egypt, this week, where some are hoping to find new consensus on how to combat climate change. Are countries taking these challenges seriously? What are these efforts likely to look like moving forward?“Everybody Toots.” Elon Musk's purchase and dramatic reorientation of Twitter is begging to drive users to other social media platforms, including the decentralized Mastodon network. What will Musk's changes mean for the future of disinformation and content moderation, both within Twitter and outside of it?For object lessons, Alan endorsed hunting the world's most dangerous game: man (with paintballs). Quinta passed along a useful reference on the state of crime in the United States and the way it is being used in the midterm elections. Scott recommended everyone try a sip of his long neglected workplace colleague. And Natan celebrated the pandemic perseverance of his office jade plants as a sign of hope in dark times.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/lawfare. Hosted on Acast.
