The chairman of the group of the poorest countries said COP26 climate talks have so far been disappointing, and even “frightening.”

“The progress made here is disappointing and in a way also frightening,” Sonam Phuntsho Wangdi, who chairs the so-called Least Developed Countries group, told reporters in Glasgow, Scotland. He called for additional funds to be made available for countries suffering from damage resulting from climate change.
