Abou El-Enein added that Sisi reviewed such demands during his African Union Presidency and various summits he attended- Glasgow Summit, the Tokyo Summit, the London Summit, and the Moscow Summit.
During his participation in the second discussion session on the role of countries and international institutions in facing the issue of climate change, on Saturday, Abou El-Enein called for the establishment of a global financial observatory for the funds collected from major countries to confront climate change, and to discuss ways to spend them.
He also called on the continent of Africa to conduct its studies on climate to Impose necessary funding on Major Countries
The parliament deputy Speaker added that during the Copenhagen summit, concerned officials agreed to raise a fund worth $100 billion, but only 20% of this amount has been collected, and the issue of adaptation took only 20% of this amount, and mitigation took 80% of this amount.
Abou El-Enein called for a comprehensive study on Egypt’s needs in keeping pace with climate changes, warning against the flooding of beaches in Alexandria, saying: “We may have to spend summer in Tanta in the future instead of Alexandria.”
He praised the role of research centers in Egypt and the new specializations in colleges such as King Salman University related to climate issues.
The Egyptian MP praised the first session of the conference, which he described as a diagnosis of environmental problems and climate changes. He added that the discussions in the first session revolved around the role of people in facing changes.
He paid tribute to the distinguished Egyptian researchers and students who devoted their time to climate-related studies.
He called on everyone to prepare for the upcoming COP27 conference in November, through competitions for distinguished research through a committee to evaluate research, and to fund this research after its approval.
Abou El-Enein explained that developing countries emitted a very small percentage of emissions, and Africa did not exceed 3%.
He warned that African countries should not borrow due to reducing emissions, stressing: “The developed countries must bear the bill of their industrial revolution, and the problem is that some developing countries say that they need 50 years of the industrial revolution to contribute to the emissions bill.”
He pointed out that one of the leaders of industrialized countries strongly criticized the contribution of a major country to a relatively small percentage in the emissions bill.
The parliament deputy speaker said: “We have to consider what is happening in climate conferences by placing additional tasks on developing countries on the burdens of development, which requires that developing countries deal with them as a grant and not as a plight. It is possible to benefit from the technological progress of the major countries in reducing emissions by demanding these technologies in their local industry.”
He expressed his regret over the climate changes, storms, and floods that the world is witnessing around the world, which not only spared our region but also affected it. He revealed that the real challenge now is who will bear the costs of emissions.
