COP26: The new draft of the agreement aims to close persistent divisions

And decisive progress in finance to help countries adapt and for the loss and damage suffered. It is a matter of deep concern that the developing countries’ proposal for a financing mechanism for loss and damage has not been included in this new draft. “
