much less learning how to be a democracy, but it's not there. one person, one vote on al jazeera ah cooperation is the only way to get this job done. an unexpected climate deal between the us and china draws a cautious welcome from activists. ah, hello and welcome. i'm peter w. watching al jazeera live for my headquarters here in doha. also coming up were on the border between poland and bella. ru swear refugees and migrants is stuck in freezing weather, or the country's blame each other. ethiopia, government denies making arbitrary arrests after detaining more than 70 drivers
10:01 am
from the will to program. and other you and employees also had running on empty people in the room, dea struggling to find medicine cache and fuel. after years of sanctions and the impact of cubic 19 environmental style, cautiously welcoming a surprise announcement from the u. s. and china that they will work together on climate action. the countries issued the joint declaration separately, a cop $26.00. while it's light on detail, it's a big shift from the start at the summit. when the 2 nations appeared at odds and re, simmons reports now from glasgow. it came out of the blue since the chinese special envoy to cop $26.00 announced his country was going to work with the united states on climate action. ah shannon are well affable. you go to me all the choice. here.
10:02 am
i'd like to announce any holden's message. china and united states have jointly released at china us joined glasgow declaration and enhancing climate action in 2020 a line. shortly after that came john kerry confirming what amounts to some sort of partnership the united states and china have no shortage of differences. but on climate and climate cooperation is the only way to get this job done. this is not a discretionary thing, frankly. this is science, it's math and physics that dictate the road that we have to travel. china and the u . s. aren't only the 2 biggest economies on earth. they're also responsible for the biggest emissions of carbon dioxide and methane gases. and that's why such a joint effort may have added value details about exactly what effect to below have
10:03 am
. i'll limited at this stage. but regardless of that, it's given a lift to proceedings here at a difficult time. earlier boris johnson had headed back to glasgow on an electric train, not the private jet. he used to fly to london last week. his mission to try bridging the gaps on a final agreement. the world is hud leaders from every country continent stand here and acknowledge the need for action and the world will find absolutely incomprehensible. if we fail to deliver that, and the backlash from people will be immense, and it will be long lasting. and frankly, we will deserve their criticism, and their opprobrium fossil fuel states may not like it, but the draft working text has devised a ratcheting up effect on cutting emissions. countries would review progress with foreign ministers meeting next year and with heads of state gathering in 2023. no
10:04 am
one needs reminding of what's at stake. although this new time lapse study of 6 weeks shows how quickly iglesia in iceland can melt cop 26th negotiations are getting more intense not helped. by latest research showing temperatures could rise by 2.4 degrees celsius. not near enough to the 1.5 celsius cap to be anything other than dangerous. and that's even if all the promises for emission cuts and other measures come to fruition. countries like the gambia in west africa, which is one of few states managing to comply with demands from the paris agreement in 2015. we are leading ganga is need, will be negotiation on adaptation. what software we're talking about long term financing. we're talking about loss and damage. we're talking about other sticking issues that are not forthcoming from deep negotiations. so this is a concern for our developing countries,
10:05 am
a least developed countries with atlanta. this is highly unlikely to be the last version of a draft agreement with rules of consensus in which every one of nearly 200 cop members have to agree. it's fair to the final action plan is more likely to be watered down, rather than toughened up. andrew simmons, al jazeera glasgow, well reaction from the world wildlife fund echoed that of many environmental organizations. this announcement could be a much needed political signal that the 2 largest and mrs. responsible for more than 40 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions adjoining forces to prevent a climate catastrophe. if they are serious about avoiding catastrophic impacts, they must also support the enhancements of national policies, plans, and actions that we'll see. 1.5 degrees celsius, kept within reach. katrina, you join us as life now from beijing. so katrina just walk us through what was mentioned in their agreement. well in this
10:06 am
joint declaration, china and the us said that they would work together to try to keep that global temperature rise to $1.00 degrees celsius. so essentially what we see inside it is a framework as to how they intend to achieve that climate target. so it talks about a few different issues, meet the emissions transition to clean energy d cobblins ation, technology transfer and reforestation as well. now what we are missing though is any sort of clear, measurable targets when it comes to those areas. but that still doesn't take away from the significance of this statement. i think it does 2 things, mainly as we heard earlier as the 2 biggest of mrs of global greenhouse gases. it really does send a jolt to the cop $26.00 conference, encouraging negotiations, encouraging other countries perhaps to step up when it comes to that or targets. and thirdly, i think for china, what it does is really send a strong message to the world that beijing is serious about tackling climate change
10:07 am
. and this message is so important because there's been a lot of backlash and criticism aimed at china because she didn't think himself did not attend the 26 conference. he has not left china since the beginning of the pandemic. he didn't even give a speech. he simply just submitted a written statement and also china failed to deliver any new targets ahead of the conference. the only basically heard details elaborating on it's already stated, plans to achieve carbon teaching by 2030 and called the neutrality by 20. 60. i think the biggest criticism that i have heard from experts here in china about these targets is that yes, china is making some very concrete actions. yes, it is moving in the right direction, but it's not moving fast enough. and what we've had for this joint declaration is an explicit statement that these are actually going to be taken in the 2020. so i think china is hoping that it is sending the message that has been an
10:08 am
acknowledgment of from aging that this is an urgent task. that needs to be acted upon really quickly, briefly, katrina, could this possibly be the beginnings of a, a reset and the relationship between paging and washington has not been an easy relationship for several years now. no, you are absolutely right. i mean, we had a birth, chinese climate and voice jim and john kerry himself say that there is no shortage of difference. and from where i stand. but does seem like a bit of an understatement. this bilateral relationship has been characterized by a growing list of hostilities and tensions over the past a few years, starting from the previous administration disagreements over taiwan, hong kong south trying to see shin young, china's human rights record. so this does seem to be a sort of milestone seeing that this seeming that this relationship could be taking
10:09 am
a turn for the better suddenly shed and was language when he gave this announcement was quite friendly in tone. he said that sino u. s. corporation is the only correct choice and can accomplish many things that can benefit both countries and the world. and certainly this is not the only signal that we've seen of possible ruling ties between the 2 countries. just earlier this week we had us national security advisor, jim sullivan mentioned that he did not believe that china and the u. s. were in a cold war. he also said that the u. s. would not try to change china's political system. something that aging has been fearing and being very protective about for some years. also, just a few weeks ago we had the 2nd phone call between president joe biden and she's in pain. and as early as next week, we are expecting a virtual summit between the 2 leaders as well. katrina, thank you very much. katrina,

10:20 am
believe it is this through the ethnic profiling, but people might be out of that. i don't think that i children, i don't have that information. and if that happens, the government doesn't allow and it might clear on the, on the date of emergency this issue that people should be treated with. and then the advocate reason that happened in any person. so somebody about it, this might happen. but they want to be better, my systematic one, if it happens that it also be a criminal act than anybody that does would actually be held accountable. but they want to be systematic. and there is no systematic harvest just because of your profile. and if the police might have found out some suspect, then they will be bound to pay and then also do do investigation. if any individual does not have adequate evidence to judge again, if you must be released but are planting, some people would not get that. my truck systematic, but because we're in complex situation, you know, how many people are being attacked and how many adults that are being done. and
10:21 am
then you know, a number of actors. so you must have a much careful individual and that that thing should not be done in the hot bath at the lee and then police must do their job. but we would also look into that the process, if there is any, every velocity, then that must be addressed. boeing has reached a settlement with the families of victims of the 2019 e. c o p, and airlines crash. it doesn't involve compensation, but does allow them to pursue individual claims in the american courts, 157 people were killed when the boeing 737 max crash shortly after take off from a saba. it was the 2nd crash involving that type of aircraft in just a few months. boeing accepted responsibility and admitted its software was to blame . us judge has approved a $626000000.00 settlement for those harmed by the lead water crisis in flint. a town in michigan, the lawsuit was brought forward by tens of thousands of residents. most of the money will come from the state of michigan,
10:22 am
which was accused of overlooking issues leading to the water crisis. to save money, flint changed with its water, came from in 2014. people immediately complained about the smell and the taste. at least remote the water was contaminated with lead and hadn't been properly treated . but the state officials insisted it was safe. rejecting findings from doctors groups, michigan, the civil rights commission later said a court systemic racism lay at the core of the cities water problems. flint is mostly black, is residents, mostly democrats. the governor at the time was a white republican law, suits relating to the what? contamination of dr. on for years wednesdays agreement is designed to settle most of them, but nearly one 3rd of the total about $200000000.00 could be claimed as lawyers fees. melissa mays is a flint resident. she says the settlement isn't nearly enough. even if you take the lawyer sees out of it, there's a $100000.00 people in the city of flint. but if you divide that 600000000 from the
10:23 am
date down by that it's not very much. and then you look at what the cost of benefits that have been 7 and a half years about dealing with, you know, contaminated water, medical, the in our home alone, our kitchen and one of our bathrooms are good because the water 8 through some of the plumbing in the ceiling and wall and behind our appliances, and it had to be gutted down to the studs so that you know, tens of thousands of dollars that we have to pay back in loans we had to take out to be able to have a usable house if we were a middle class or wealthy white community, this wouldn't have happened. and if it did, it would have been fixed quickly. we've seen other cities like an arbor, which is the upper, you know, upper class white college town. they replaced all of their lead pipe before one pipe was removed in flint, and they didn't even have a water crate. we are still doing the federal government in the e p a because they ignored our cries for help when the state and city ignored us. and then we also have the private, the private engineering firm,
10:24 am
the only and land and work we found out through these hearings. and he, you know, going back and forth court for the past several years. they had their hands on a lot more with the decision making and the downplaying than was, was expected. and, you know, i mean that's where we're hoping that this part of the partial settlement is aimed 80 percent at kids under the age of 8 being. we're hoping that adults will become paid properly with the next part, and hopefully the other defendants smart enough to settle in burundi. fuel supplies are running out. economists say it's because of sanctions imposed by the european union and the us in 2015. when president pierre and coroners isa ran for controversial 3rd term, catherine selina from put and bureau this has become a familiar sight on the streets of which were watery, spent much of their time queuing for fuel. happy man, i'm mad. he says it's taken half 4 hours to get hot tank feels good to go on the
10:25 am
time and it's a big problem because we're often late for work. it completely disrupts our days. some economists say the country is running low on foreign currency that's needed for imports like fuel and medicines. many poor young, they are frustrated. this has been going on for weeks now, but it's not the 1st time the experiencing a shortage of fuel war. neither is the the 1st and the government is facing a shortage of foreign currency. sam palace, it all goes back to 2015 when there was a political crisis for my president pierre, and cruise is this decision to run for controversial. 30 tom, 6 years ago sparked political and ras. one in 1000 people were killed and many displaced. donors, like the european union in the us, withdrew government funding, and sanctions imposed on the country are yet to be lifted. the pandemic and a closure foreign exchange bureaus by the central bank in 2020 made the situation
10:26 am
was the cost over there, covered the 19th test to cross the border. you have to be tested for 30 u. s. d a to mean that to for air. as more trader is too much the movement of for trade as a between a d r a, c, and a balloon. the remains slow. despite to the border has been reopened. it presents a big amount of, or of money in terms of, or for any currency where those are small trade as are crossing daily. hurry to bornea dulness, your imports goods from asia, europe, and neighboring countries. he says he's struggling to stay afloat. i did them in plus, there's no money in circulation, we need to import things from asian other neighboring countries to buy those goods . you have to have foreign currency. if we don't, that means there's
10:27 am
a big problem. he tells us he hopes sanctions will soon be lifted and border crossings fully reopened. because without that, the economy can't start growing again. catching so al jazeera, which a bureau. now despite having some of europe's most polluted air, milan the, has its site set on becoming a leader of the sustainable city movement. the city is now working towards the goal of planting 3000000 trees by the end of the decade, and incorporating nature and sustainability into every urban project. adarine has more rising into the sky mulanda vertical forest apartment complex has become a symbol of the global, sustainable city movement. draped in vegetation. the towering gardens are equivalent to a forest covering 3 heck tears home to 800 trees and 15000 plants. the building absorbs and net total of 11 tons of carbon dioxide
10:28 am
a year. the architect behind the project says much more to be done to truly make milan and other cities sustainable. one of the main issue now is to make the construction process more soft. because this is a building with a structure which is price traditional and we are now working through the project, often your high rise buildings with all of the structuring boot, mtv. and that's what will be an amazing way to reduce the term, our footprint for the production. as yet, during the construction side process, this green refuge provides views of greater milan, larger problem, smog. greenhouse gases are trapped in a massive plane at the base of the alps. the pandemic has accelerated milan push for sustainability coming out of the lock down. city planners worried people would choose cars over crowded public transport. so they expanded the network of bike
10:29 am
lanes. there's a sprint to, to create more green spaces. of course faces like this one. do more than just sustain the environment, they sustain communities and urban planner, se necessary have more space is like this one. so people living and city feel they have some access to resilience, expert peer to believe, shadow champions. these projects. but he says it's clear what problem milan must tackle. think 30 sco katie guys, every 100 you know, everything. now we have, we dropped to $46.00. so it mean it, we are when we are reducing minimal cars and increasing the space for 3 and 4 green infrastructure. but these don't enough green more because climate change is impacting the city, like heat waves and flesh building a vision to redefine milan for those who call at home and those looking for sustainable models to follow. adam rainy al jazeera milan. the sydney opera house
