Insight of the Week: Majority Say Wealthy Countries Should Help Poorer Nations Deal with Climate Change

Three-quarters of people around the world say that wealthy countries should help poorer nations deal with the effects of climate change.​

This suggests strong public support for a just transition and echoes a main theme of COP27 around the obligation of wealthier countries that have benefitted the most from industrialization to provide financing to help poorer countries that suffer the most from the impacts of climate change.​
