The leaders of the G7 countries affirmed their determination to end the Covid-19 pandemic through the distribution of vaccines and pledged to distribute more than one billion doses of the vaccine by the end of 2022.
According to Agence France-Presse, the leaders of the Group of Seven countries, at the conclusion of a three-day summit in Cornwall, southwest Britain, prepared a plan aimed at preparing the world to enable it to confront a new pandemic within less than a hundred days.
In their final statement, the leaders of the countries of the group called on the World Health Organization to investigate more in-depth on the origin of the Corona virus.
Several bodies from non-governmental organizations to the World Health Organization considered that the pledge is very small, indicating that the world needs 11 billion vaccine doses to eradicate the pandemic.
The summit also pledged to tackle climate change from a large-scale global plan for infrastructure in poor countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America to encourage green growth by stimulating investments in renewable energy resources and clean technology.
The leaders also reiterated their commitment to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and to halt government subsidies to coal-fired power plants from this year.
Environmental activists see these decisions as weak and demand actions, not words, which they stressed during demonstrations against the summit in Cornwall.
Greenpeace denounced old promises relaunched while Extinction Rebellion called the summit a failure.
