Climate change is a major topic at this year’s World Economic Summit in Davos, Switzerland. Nearly $1 trillion has been committed by global philanthropists for various causes over the last few years, but only 2% of that amount goes toward climate actions, according to U.S. Climate Envoy John Kerry.
Ukraine’s first lady also spoke at the annual meeting on Tuesday. She scolded government leaders and corporate executives for not always using their influence to do enough to halt the Russian invasion.
