'We Are Not Yet Where We Need to Be': Merkel

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called upon developed countries to institute dramatic emissions reductions and provide finance as promised to developing nations, during her national statement at the U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow on Monday, The Hill reports. 

“We are not yet where we need to get, where we have to be,” Merkel said.

“The world community hopes — and I would like to underline this — that we present ourselves in a better shape at the end of this conference than we found ourselves in at the beginning,” Merkel said. 

Emphasizing that “the impact of climate change is devastating,” Merkel suggested measuring national targets “in a more binding way,” thereby providing the “yardstick” necessary to meet goals set in Paris by mid-century.
