The EU decided to help developing nations on climate change issue

The European Climate Commissioner Miguel Arias Canete is defending the Paris Agreement on Climate.


The EU is ready to provide $891 million (800 million euros) to a number of 79 developing countries in Africa and the Pacific and Caribbean area (ACP), in order to help them in the fight against climate change.

The EU decided to provide the financial support for those countries due to the fact that Donald Trump is leading a campaign in the U.S., which plans to remove the country from the Paris Climate Agreement signed in 2015 by the former president Barrack Obama.

Through the voice of the European Climate Commissioner Miguel Arias Canete, the EU announced on Thursday, its intention to increase the cooperation with the ACP countries by providing the support of 800 million euros by the year 2020, from which half will go for development, and the other half to fight against climate change.

The EU will also provide a support of $3.3 million (3 million euros) for Fiji (which is the country that will oversee the UN negotiations in 2018).

The U.S. president Donald Trump announced that he will decide on the Paris Agreement after he will attend the Group of Seven summit in Italy on May 26-27, 2017.

The European Climate Commissioner Miguel Arias Canete stated that the Paris Agreement on climate is “irreversible and non-negotiable” while almost 200 nations are attending the U.N. talks in Bonn on how to address climate change by enhancing the implementation of the Paris Agreement.
