Egypt joins Netherlands, Malawi in supporting UK-led scheme to fight against climate change

Egypt is cooperating with the UK to push for practical measures to combat climate change.

The UK initiative will be joined by the Netherlands, Bangladesh, Malawi, and Saint Lucia and will push for “early warning systems for storms and investments in flood drainage and in drought-resistant crops,” Reuters added.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to announce the Adaptation Action Coalition on Monday as leaders from world powers gather for the two-day, online-only Climate Adaptation Summit.

The news comes just days after U.S. President Joe Biden announced America’s return to the international Paris Agreement on climate change.
