The year 2021 must be the one of action for protecting people against the “disastrous” effects of climate change, the UN insisted on Monday, ahead of a crucial US-convened summit. Time is fast running out to tackle the climate crisis, the UN warned, with the pandemic having failed to put the brakes on “relentless” climate change.

The call comes alongside a major report ahead of US President Joe Biden’s climate summit on Thursday and Friday.

Forty world leaders have been invited to attend Biden’s virtual talks aimed at galvanising efforts by the major economies to tackle the climate crisis.
