Some positives were achieved in COP26: UN United Nations Resident Coordinator to Fiji Sanaka Samarasinha says it is important to note that there were some successes achieved at the COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Samarasinha's comment comes after some Pacific leaders were upset with the outcomes of the meeting.

He said while the spotlight was on the failure of developed nations to completely phase out coal usage, one major achievement was the pledge by countries to end deforestation by 2030.

“There is significant funding for this (deforestation), we’re talking billions of dollars and some of those funds will be specifically targeting indigenous groups,” he said.

“As we know in most parts of the world, they are the keepers of the forests so it’s important that we empower local communities to protect the environment.”

“Another key achievement was that 105 countries had pledged to reduce their methane emissions by 30 per cent by 2030.

“Methane is a significant contributor to global warming from oil wells and pipelines. When you have countries like the United States showing leadership in this is quite heartening,” he said.

He said regional countries have also achieved milestones in other areas such as gender and ensuring that the voices of vulnerable communities are heard.
