Assistant Minister of Development Matilda Ernkrans will visit Lahti, Finland on April 3-4 to discuss countries affected by climate change and their emerging needs. The ministerial meeting will be attended by representatives of donor countries and vulnerable partner countries, as well as climate finance and multidisciplinary development banks.
Severe weather, prolonged drought, violent fires and catastrophic floods are becoming more common. Many countries are now affected by the food crisis that followed the Russian invasion of Ukraine. At the heart of the debate is how to increase support for the adaptation of these vulnerable countries and make them more efficient and accessible.
– We have to deal with many crises at once. As the recent report of the UN Climate Commission shows, more people are being hit hard by the climate crisis than we thought. The poorest people in the world have the least debt, but they suffer the most. Assistant Minister of Development Matilda Ernkrans says the government’s ambitious climate mission continues.
Donor countries participating in the meeting work to focus more on adaptation issues within the framework of the ‘Champions Group for Adoption Finance’. In addition to Sweden, Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Germany are included. In addition, the meeting will be attended by representatives of vulnerable allies and climate finance and multidisciplinary development banks.
