China is struggling with tumultuous weather, energy crunches and expensive fuel imports — much like many other developing or less developed nations not blessed with abundant energy resources. It is therefore no surprise that Beijing will be joining hands with such countries in the coming COP27 climate talks to step up pressure on rich nations to make good on the promise of $100 billion in annual climate finance pledged back in 2009. Echoing calls by host Egypt for the Nov. 7-18 climate summit to be an “implementation COP,” Beijing has similarly made clear that it wants climate “adaptation and financing” to be the “highlight” of the conference for delivering “concrete outcomes.”
