UN Roundup - Wildfires in Siberia
27 July 2020.
On today's UN Round-up:
1 - Siberian wildfires require urgent climate action.
“Some parts of Siberia this week have again topped 30 degrees Celsius (86F) – so it’s been warmer in Siberia than…many parts of Florida. “We’re seeing, you know, dramatic satellite images, which show the extent of the burns surface; the fire front of the northern-most currently active Arctic wildfire is less than eight kilometres from the Arctic ocean – this should not be happening.” - Clare Nullis, World Meteorological Organization (WMO) .
2 - WHO Press conference on Covid19
