The climate crisis threatens everyone, everywhere — and while wealthy countries are major polluters, the changes to our planet disproportionately impact people living in poverty.

Experts believe we can keep our planet survivable if we prevent the earth from warming beyond 1.5°C. This is within our reach - but only if major economies act urgently.

Canada and the US are the only G7 countries that have not reduced greenhouse gas emissions since 2016 - with Canada having the greatest emissions increase in all the G7. For its part, Canada can help halt warming if it commits to increase its ambition and concrete targets to reach net-zero by 2050, with interim targets for 2030 aligned with preventing more than 1.5 degrees of warming.

But it cannot stop there. In 2009, the wealthiest nations made a promise to provide poorer countries with $100 billion USD per year to help them confront climate change.  The target date to start delivering these funds was 2020. Now, one year past the deadline, only Germany, Norway, and Sweden have paid their fair share of the $100 billion goal. While the Canadian government recently announced it would double its climate finance contributions over the next five years, this amount is not enough to make up for its shortfall in overall funding.
