Thousands of Activists Take Photos at the G20 Summit 2021
Posted by invest on December 6th, 2022
Thousands of people came to participate in the G20 Summit in Toronto, and first responders were among the guests. However, the summit was not attended by as many leaders as it was in last year's conference. Some of the arguments about climate change were also discussed. The summit was also attended by a number of activists, including those who have been fighting against the COVID-19 vaccine.
Thousands of activists
Thousands of activists took photos at the G20 summit 2021, urging world leaders to take bolder action on climate change and other issues. They also demanded that countries stop sheltering profits in tax havens.
Thousands of police officers are on hand to keep troublemakers out of Rome. Police said they expect 5,000-10,000 people to join a march. They also said that more people have been detained since the G20 summit.
The annual Group of 20 summit is expected to address climate change and the global supply chain. The summit is being held in Rome, Italy, on October 30-31.
World leaders met Saturday and Sunday to discuss issues including the global economy, climate change, the fight against pandemics, and supply chain bottlenecks. The summit will end with an official joint declaration.
First responders joined the leaders on the stage
Despite a number of notable absentees, the G20 did manage to meet and mingle for two days in Bali. The event marked the first time leaders of the world's major economic powerhouses have met face to face in more than two years. Besides the usual suspects, Italy's Mario Draghi and Narendra Modi of India also joined the fray, in what was a high-powered delegation. Despite the usual political bickering, leaders made it clear they share a common goal. They also vowed to collaborate on a plan to address global supply chain vulnerabilities, a topic of paramount importance given the recent outbreak of the deadly virus.
The event was kicked off by the usual suspects and a few stragglers, including a gaggle of delegates from the World Health Organization. One of the most impressive aspects of the summit was the way in which the world's most influential leaders have managed to communicate with each other on an equal footing.
Developing nations running out of patience with COVID-19 vaccines
Developing nations running out of patience with COVID-19 vaccines may be in for a long and expensive road ahead. As a result, new collaborative efforts are bridging gaps, but there is still much more to be done to ensure equitable access to vaccines for all. These new approaches are only effective if they are paired with established international forums and global cooperation. These actions should include promoting context-driven solutions, supporting multilateral frameworks for equitable vaccine allocation, and highlighting the role of development finance in the vaccine distribution process.
Among the most important factors in the success of a vaccination campaign is trust in the vaccine. Survey results indicate that respondents in developing countries are less likely to be willing to accept a vaccine based on perceived risk. This reluctance is most pronounced in Sub-Saharan Africa, but may be more widespread in LMICs as well.
Arguments over climate change
Whether or not the G20 summit in Rome in 2021 will have a successful outcome will depend on how countries respond to arguments over climate change. It's not too late to make progress on this vital issue. The world is facing dire threats from unabated warming, which could lead to record breaking droughts and floods. Unless we get serious about slowing down emissions, we could end up in a climate catastrophe.
The Paris agreement, ratified in 2015, committed all signatory nations to keep global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius. But experts are sceptical about this commitment. They say that limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius is a much more achievable goal. It requires a rapid and drastic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, we need to limit residual emissions by increasing carbon sinks, such as forests, peatlands, and wetlands.
Absence of so many leaders at last year's summit
During the G20 summit last week, President Trump showed little respect for the forum. He showed up to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping on the side, but did not follow through with notetaking. He also agreed to restart stalled trade talks.
The G20 summit last week in Rome was notable for the absence of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping. Putin's absence is a major blow to Russia, but it is unlikely to have much impact on energy prices.
Xi's absence is also noteworthy for the fact that he hasn't left China in over two years. Beijing has dispatched Foreign Minister Wang Yi to take his place.
Although Putin's absence is disappointing, it is not lost on the White House. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Xi's decisions will have a major impact on the future of the world.
