Cuba urges compliance with commitments to face climate change

Havana, June 1 (Prensa Latina) The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez, today urged industrialized countries to fulfill all their commitments to face the global effects of climate change.

Despite the establishment of the Loss and Damage Fund to compensate for the impacts of climate change in island countries, 90 percent of the financing has gone to industrialized countries, Rodríguez wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

It is urgent that these nations assume historical responsibility and fulfill their climate commitments, he added.

The Foreign Minister’s exhortation comes in connection with the Fourth International Conference on Small Island Developing States, held from May 27 to 30 in Antigua and Barbuda.

According to data presented at the event, these States are more exposed than others to drought, desertification, hurricanes, storms, floods or other extreme weather phenomena, causing great damage.

For Cuba, it is an urgent need for developed countries to support efforts to finance strategies adopted with the purpose of confronting and reducing the effects of the climate crisis.
