A deal has been reached after the latest Cop summit – number 27 –has come to a conclusion with a new agreement in place between all the countries involved. But is it enough to the rapid climate change the planet is currently experiencing?

The deal was reached after the two week-summit held in Egypt ran into overtime. The agreement established a fund to compensate vulnerable countries for the irreparable climate damage they have suffered, in a major breakthrough for nations that are experiencing the most serious effects of the climate emergency.

But Cop26 president Alok Sharma has said the ambition to limit global heating to 1.5C is “on life support” after a deal was struck.

Meanwhile UN secretary general Antonio Guterres said that the conference had made progress, “but let’s be clear: our planet is still in the emergency room”.
