Igor Yurgens, president of the All-Russian Union of Insurers (ARIA), presented his report on the topic “Preparation of the Russian position at the UN Climate Conference in Sharm al-Sheikh.”

He noted that this fall’s Sharm el-Sheikh meeting was originally intended to continue the agenda set out at the previous Glasgow summit: reducing carbon emissions, phasing out some fossil fuels and increasing assistance to poor countries in the fight against climate change . However, the current reality speaks in favor of the fact that this agenda can be adjusted in an important way.

Although the 2021 Glasgow climate summit confirmed the global community’s fundamental commitment to the idea of ​​a “green transition” and a common understanding that this transition can only be made on the basis of the principles of sustainable development, it also clearly showed the lack of a common vision on how these principles should be put into practice. The results of last year’s conference in Glasgow received mixed reviews.

In the current 2022, climate challenges have worsened. Its additional catalyst was the military operations in the east of the European continent. First, the imbalance in global fuel markets has worsened, domestic fossil fuel production and coal consumption are growing. But not only. The widespread need to guarantee agricultural sovereignty in grains, feed and fertilizers beats the previous course towards the greening of agriculture. The growth in military spending (extremely energy-intensive) comes at the expense of other budget items, including the cost of decarbonization. The issue of climate challenges in national political discussions and the global governance agenda is moving to the background, attention to them is weakening. Global governance processes themselves are significantly hampered by general confrontation. This split is inevitably reflected in any sphere of international cooperation, so the real agenda of the UN Climate Conference in Egypt will take shape under the influence of these events.

“Finally, the time has come to develop a clear common position for productive common work. This is, of course, a slow and difficult task. But one way or another, it is already being done, and it is important that any part of the global processes does not remain on the sidelines of it,” Yurgens commented on the upcoming UN Climate Conference.
