envoy on extreme poverty says lebanon risks becoming a failed states because of its economic crisis. hello, the u. n. climate summit and glasgow has gone into overtime with delegates trying to reach an agreement on a draft plan to protect the planets from catastrophic global warming. representatives from nearly 200 countries are continuing negotiations. decor aim as to cap, global warming of 1.5 degrees celsius. and for this to happen, the world needs to cut emissions by 45 percent by the year 2030, and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. this is our collected moment in history. this is our chance to forge a cleaner, healthier, more process. well,
10:02 am
and this is our time to deliver on the high ambition set by our leaders. at the start of this summit, we must rise to the occasion. while analysts say the current pledges are not enough, and the earth is still heading for $2.00 degrees of warming. but there has been some progress. china and the u. s. the world's top greenhouse gas emitter, say, vail increased cooperation deals to n d 4 station cut methane and phase out fossil fuels have also been made. but financing the transition remains a sticking point for all of those. let's bring an anderson and he's joining us from cop 26 and glasgow. so, andrew, what are we expecting to happen in the coming hours? well, collective moment in history is the way loc sharma, the cop president, described it. and with that, a,
10:03 am
he briefed all the delegates or what was happening in the hours ahead, although no one can predict which way there will swerve or where there could be hitches or, or successes or otherwise. so basically the situation is this, we are expecting within the next hour or so a revised text document, that is the draft document for the final 7 settlement, the communique, if you will. and that will set out changes, adjustments, they could be nuances, they could be more than that. they could be big issues, issues such as fossil fuels. rarely have you seen this sort of discussion going on on paper in a un documents at a cop meeting. this issue of fossil fuels and whether or not was a phase out coal in particular. so what we'll see then we will see that draft document presented. and then there will be another round of negotiations, lots of bleary, eyes,
10:04 am
lots of weary faces and they will continue. then there will be an informal m, a stop take. it's described as sometimes a plenary and meeting with, with the leaders or all of countries, all at conversing in a fairly informal atmosphere. beyond that there will be further talks and then it's projected by sharma that there will be a formal meeting at some point on saturday afternoon and resolutions made further discussions possibly. but the aim being to actually have an end result is not unusual to see a cop extended. and it's not really surprising with the level of us that stress over so many massive issues that are relate to everyone's life on this planet. so yes, right now, we are expecting this document and there's an air of tension even at this early hour in glasgow. so what are the main sticking points that delegates are looking at?
10:05 am
well the primary one is, is the issue of a fossil fuels or the am that the, the, the other assistance given at to programs for fossil fuels as a sub subsistence levels at now has been an adjustment to that. and to say that, sir, at certain types of subsistence the aren't, aren't eco friendly or could good could, could be dismissed and others not so that the, the take on this is that sir, any form of subsistence for fossil fuels as subsidence that he sold would be totally contrary to to any ecological argument. so that is one area. the other area is coal and this is really big because coal power, it should be the li, phasing out should be accelerated according to this clause in the draft document.
10:06 am
now that also has been changed in the rast last re draft at to, to declare that the can be the building of new coal plants are providing. they have the necessary safety equipment to cut emissions and, and really stop any, any serious emissions are being released. so this is an unusual twist and, and so both of those situations they're allow, get al clauses, potentially a for fossil fuel states who are very heavy on the ground in terms of the lobbying background over this past 2 weeks. and they have been getting very strong arguments . so this is that the real, the real eyes are on that. furthermore, people are also concerned about the issue of coming back within a year to beef up projections of cuts in emissions for each country. the national assessment the countries make. now that is absolutely essential a to see progress there to see that that would be the $1.00. a degrees celsius sir
10:07 am
. a target in sight to, to actually keep to the vows, to keep the promise is that it's essential in the minds of any one with any knowledge of this or how this goes is essential that there's a commitment to that. we can re convention of all the parties here to actually get a decision on that within the year's time. okay, thank you so much. andrew simmons reporting from glasgow star, it's your burgundy loses up to 30000 tons of soil because of land degradation and deforestation. the united nation says a growing population is driving the loss of forest. it's accelerated climate change . length disaster is like torrential rains, floods, landslides and pro long dry seasons. catherine sawyer reports. broom these landscape is majestic with nearly $3000.00 hills home to communities organized around each hill. but this beautiful terrain is threatened by years of over you soil erosion. deforestation,

10:18 am
away from the spotlight with the big decisions and deals are made in the virtual world. it's difficult to get a sense of any tension, but it was brought to the surface during a speech by china's president. she jin ping to a c e o summit the day before the lead is met or shall be thought mocking towards him. mover had, i'm reject practices, are of discrimination and exclusion of others issue attempts to draw to article lines or reforms more circles on geopolitical crowns. are bound to fail, you should pacific region and being cannot and should not rely please enter the confrontation and division of the cold war era. his comments appeared to be in response to the united states, increasing military cooperation with regional allies, including india, japan and australia, and came after years of trade. tensions between the 2 countries. on monday, president, she will meet virtually with his u. s counterpart, joe biden. there are also issues around the trade pact. no, as the comprehensive and progressive agreement for trends. pacific partnership,

10:20 am
but that's not happening at the chinese president simply not leaving the country and hasn't done it since march last year. so this will all be done virtually. it will be done here. at the white house on monday they will talk about a number of things that they have in common. first of all, getting on top of the corporate crisis. there's the global supply chain as well. 3 there is also the climate change, and we knew that joe biden was pretty critical of the chinese for not showing up in glasgow essentially seeing that if you want to be a while leader, you have to show up to lead at there will be other things that they will touch on including nuclear weapons, they will talk about it, china's military operations in and around taiwan. i remember it's just a week ago that the americans have said that they are obliged. joe biden said that they are obliged to defend taiwan and would do so. and of course, there's been quite a leap forward in chinese military technology with them testing a supersonic aircraft that can go into space or something that might milly who is
10:21 am
the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. here in the united states said the change in china's wealth and also its military operations is the greatest geopolitical shift in more than 20 years. so yes, they've got a lot to cover. will they be able to do it one day? probably not. but if they can show some sort of cooperation on things like exports and visa controls, then they will regard this as a success. and it's really about getting the relationship back on track. because the relationship between the chinese and the united states has been it's still me for a number of months. former top aid to donald trump's, the baton has been charged with 2 criminal acts for disobeying a congressional order. the 67 year old was subpoenaed and refused to testify in front of the congressional committee investigating the mob attack on the white house. in january. the committee is trying to determine the origins of that attack that attempted to stop the certification of president biden's election. when

10:25 am
services and monitor the condition, security of u. s. diplomatic facilities in afghanistan. the 2nd agreement formalize is our partnership with cutter to facilitate the travel of afghans with us special immigrant visas. the last of the u. s. embassy officials left cobble on august 31st . so it's been very difficult for the state department to get passports and visas to us and afghan citizens. now, cutlery officials and cobble will fill that void more important. they'll act as a go between for the taliban and the biden administration. the cutlery, foreign minister says the agreement will help advance another u. s. cutter priority. supporting the afghan people, especially when it comes to human rights. we believe engaging with body bon, since they are empowered right now is very important for us to ensure that are our facilitation. all humanitarian assistance is moving small to be and also encouraging them and urging them all the time to send up to their commitments
10:26 am
and their pledges for the international community. the agreement also shows just how far relations between the u. s. and cutter have come, despite occasional differences, after nearly 50 years of diplomatic ties, the trumpet ministration backed the g. c. c. blockade against doha, imposed in june 2017. a diplomatic route only resolved in january. and analysts say cutter's new role representing the interests of the world's most powerful country. and a contentious region represents a payoff of years of diplomatic ambition. cutter has been in the game so to speak for quite some time when it comes to the situation with afghan or standing rest relations with on. so i actually think that it's a very logical choice and i think it makes good sense from his perspective. the deal between the u. s. and cutter is limited and scope. it doesn't mean that they
10:27 am
agree on how to engage the taliban as a political entity. and only experience will show whether having a proxy represent the u. s. as entertainment cobble will actually satisfy it's long term national security goals. rosalyn jordan al jazeera, the state department. i've been leaders have reaffirmed their commitment to free and credible elections in december. but you should the statement at the end of an international conference hosted by france. it included germany, italy, on the u. s. delegates pushed for election transparency and or threatening sanctions against anybody obstructing the landmark votes. there are fears, rival factions might reject the outcome. lebanon's government is failing its people . that's the verdict of the un envoy on extreme poverty who was visiting the country of via this shooter says lebanon is in danger of becoming a failed states. then i heard that reports from a route. the un human rights council sent an envoy to lebanon,
10:28 am
to look at how the government here has been addressing one of the world's worst economic crises. oliver, this shall tear spoke to those affected officials as well as the donor community, which he said is running out of patience with the government for failing to reform the system. and it's not just the international community who lost trust in them. when i told many people about my mission, when i spoke to families who are destitute in bush moods in people lee in bol bake, they often answered murphy. dolly, there is no state that has not confidence in the ability of the state to provide a response. so you want to avoid explained in detail how here's of long standing inequalities, the lack of social protection systems, and an economic model that benefited the rich contributed to the collapse. for example, the connections between politicians and the private sector reached the highest
10:29 am
levels of political power in lebanon. 18 out of 20 banks had major shareholders linked to political elites. lebanon is also one of the most unequal countries in the world where some 10 percent of the population holds nearly 70 percent of the wealth. while 40 percent of public revenue comes from taxes that affect the poor. the authorities have been blamed for decades of mismanagement and corruption have failed to stop the economic collapse. it took 13 months of political bickering before they agreed on a new cabinet in september. but it hasn't been able to convene in the past months because of a new political crisis. this, with her blamed government in action for what he called a manufactured crisis, that ruined lives and condemned the majority of the population into poverty. the population is facing unprecedented challenges, impoverishment is widespread. i saw scenes in lebanon that i had not
10:30 am
imagined i would ever see in the middle income country. the you and envoy didn't describe lebanon as a failed state, at least not yet. he did say it is headed in that direction with a government failing its population. that doesn't believe it will work. and the public's interest than a hunter, al shahida, beirut, ah, hello again. the headlines on al jazeera, the un climate summit, and glasgow has gone into overtime, delegates attempting to reach an agreement on a draft plan to protect the planet. the core a mr. cap global warming at 1.5 degrees celsius and or summons has more from glasgow. we are.
