What to Watch Out for at COP27 Climate Talks

China’s top envoy for climate change called for more aid to developing nations as delegates from about 200 countries arrived in Egypt for a new round of global negotiations.

“I hope the conference this time will meet the demands of developing countries as much as possible as it is held in Egypt, a developing nation,” Xie Zhenhua said during an event hosted in China’s pavilion Sunday, including funds to  help nations adapt to a warming climate.
