  • President Biden pledges 500m more vaccines to developing world
    President Joe Biden made the pledge at a virtual Covid-19 summit on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, promising an "arsenal of vaccines".

    At the 76th General Assembly in New York, President Biden urged global cooperation to tackle the pandemic and climate change. He pledged to double US climate finance for developing countries by 2024, while China says it will stop financing coal plants abroad. But are these gestures, or real steps towards climate change?
