·        In the run-up to COP26, last year in Glasgow, several developed countries had declared their intention to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

·        Developed countries are responsible for more than half of these historical CO 2 emissions.

·        Global energy poverty is concentrated in the developing countries. In 2021, 733 million people had no access to electricity and almost 2.6 billion people lacked access to clean fuels and technologies.

·        Almost 90 million people in Asia and Africa, who gained access to electricity recently, cannot afford to pay their energy bills.

·        In this background, COP27 affords a critical moment to acknowledge and address the concerns surrounding energy access and security in developing countries.

·        Bridging the energy deficits in the global South using renewable energy alone is a much bigger challenge compared to what developed countries will face this winter.

·        At COP27, the global South must put the question of its energy poverty and the severe global inequalities in energy access squarely at the centre of all discussions.

·        A developing country leadership at COP27 can ensure effective discussions, based on equity and common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities, on the relative responsibilities and sharing of mitigation and adaptation burdens while coping with loss and damage.
