Czechia’s Jurečka addresses COP27 conference in Egypt

The Czech minister of the environment, Marian Jurečka, spoke at the COP27 UN climate change conference in Egypt’s Sharm el-Sheikh on Tuesday. He made the address on behalf of the European Union, of which Czechia currently holds the presidency.

Mr. Jurečka told delegates that people in every region of the world were faced with the dangerous impacts of climate change in their daily lives. He said previous efforts aimed at slowing climate change had been insufficient and that a major lack of ambition persisted in many areas.
