to say, just said, and it's time for a different approach. one that is going to challenge the way you think from international politics, to the global pandemic, and everything in between. upfront with me, mark lamond hill on out 0. ah, the 1st sales done, wild leaders at the you and the climate summit agree to end deforestation by the year 2030. there's no more time to hang back or shoot an offense or argue amongst ourselves. and while there are urgent calls or action at top $26.00, some of the worse pollution of pushing back ah, bill when it comes to hobby, when i come out. santa maria, this is the world news from al jazeera. it's been another building collapse in nigeria largest city,

lagos. 3 people are dead and dozens more missing. he was attacked. he was assaulted his house for a shot at 12 years such for justice. the case of a sher lankin journalist who was brutally murdered, goes to the hate. ah, so one day into the cop 26 climate conference in scotland and wold ladies of manage their 1st agreements to end deforestation by 2030 more. why they, presidents and prime ministers spoke about the severity of the climate emergency, but what's far less certain is what action they can actually deliver to stave off catastrophic levels of warming. our diplomatic editor james base begins i coverage from glasgow. o intense diplomacy ahead of this event has been going on for years. this has been build as the conference that can save the planet. it's

host the u. k. prime minister, making the point of the city where it's being held. glasgow was the place where the steam engine was invented 250 years ago, triggering an industrial revolution that started the climate crisis. yes, my friends, we brought you to the very place where the doomsday machine began to tick. humanity has long since run down the clock on climate change. it's one minute to midnight on that doomsday clock, and we need to act now to scan it and the warnings of what is at stake here, continued this from the un secretary general william, our addiction to fossil fuels, is pushing humanity to the brain. we face a stark choice either we stop it or it stops us. we are digging our own grapes. u. s. president joe biden came to glasgow with, unlike his predecessor,
6:03 am
donald trump, a strong commitment of pipe the climate emergency. but without the tools to do so, his green policies depend on a massive spending package that has already been paid back and has yet to pass congress. there's no more time to hang back or sit in the fence or argue amongst ourselves. this is a challenge of our collective lifetime, the existential threat, threat to human existence as we know it. the president told delegates the eyes of history were on them, but president biden's own eyes were the subject of speculation on social media. what did he doze off at one point as he listened to the speeches here in glasgow, there'll be 12 days of long, intense negotiations for this vital conference to be a success. all the stars need to align, but some powerful leaders like president she of china and russia. president putin are not here. and there's not been the hope for momentum ahead of caught 26 over
6:04 am
the weekend in rome. the leaders of the most prosperous nations on the planet met. they said all the right words about the climate, but they didn't take the action that was needed. according to environmentalists, one g 20 country india has committed at the glasgow conference to be net 0 by 2070 . but prime minister there andro modi's announcement will disappoint many putting his country 2 decades behind the un target of 2050 barra india will fulfill 50 percent of its energy requirements from renewable energy sources by 2030 . between now and 2030 india will reduce as total projected carbon emissions by $1000000000.00 tons by 2030. and you will reduce the carbon intensity of its economy by 45 percent and by 2070. and you will achieve the target of net 0 emissions spent living on the front lay mia motley, is the prime minister of barbados, a small island nation that was battered by
6:05 am
a hurricane in july called red cord, red to the g 7 countries. cord red cord read to the g. 20 earth. the ha, that's what it said. earth to cop for those who are ways to see for those who have is to listen and for the laws who have a heart to fear. 1.5 is what we need to survive. the urgency of the situation is obvious, but it's still not clear. there's the commitment by all nations to try to fix things. james bay's al jazeera glasgow. let's return to this issue of deforestation . talk to michelle for sarah about the she's in san francisco, director of the nature conservancy, california climate program. thank you for being with us today. michelle. so i'm looking at some of the details of this and it says that canada, brazil, russia, and indonesia have all signed up and that covers 85 percent of the world's forests
6:06 am
. so actually this is looking like a pretty good, not i, it's a terrific start. we need but just like best to kick our cop 26. this really is a determining decade for us to really turn the corner on climate change and avoid some of the hardest impacts that we face in terms of reducing emissions and what we're already starting to witness in terms of storms and see level rise as this is a really good start. there was a similar deal though, i think back in 2014, which quote here, failed to slow deforestation at all. so again, it comes down to commitments, doesn't it? it comes out to actually, i should say, following through on commitments. it does and you know, it is still important. we do need these high level political commitments from our leaders. we also need to get all the way to the ground q in gauge communities and
6:07 am
indigenous community information. it's important that we've got a lot more pledges than we did in 2014, to commit to rigid stopping deforestation, and reversing it by 2030. i think that is notable. in addition, there's over $900000000000.00. pledge in both public and private funds. so it is a good start. there's a lot more that we still need to do, but we do need a high level commitment, as well as, as work on the ground and finding ways to engage, to move, to solving. can you give our view as the source of domino effect here? if i can call it that day for stations, or it starts with the deforestation, water or the knock on effects because it's not just the issue of carbon emissions and it's so much more to it. well there's, there's a lot more of that. but the question i but,
6:08 am
and just kinda starting with the basics of some of your viewers may know as our trees grow, they absorb carbon by the atmosphere and they store it in the roots than the branches and the tree trunk and in the soil. but when these are disturbed through forestation or unsustainable management, that carbon released back into the atmosphere. and that is what's happening. but we have a chance to reverse that drone through more sustainable manager practices and through restoration and conservation. as you noted, there are other impacts that, that come with that if we do the forest that often can have impacts on local communities and their way of life. it can also impact water i and water quality, or all these other what we call co benefits that are associated with these resource
6:09 am
lose our forest or when they're degraded. we also lose a lot of these other important benefits. the things that we depend on for our livelihood and for economy. so it's a win win if we're able to restore and conserve these for us in, in tropical countries, but also globally when, when that's what we like michelle for, sorry, joining us from san francisco today. thank you for your time. thank you. any p o p rebels from the target people's liberation front say they've joined up with rebel forces from the countries most populous region, or romeo g, p. a left says it's forces have sees the town of combo chest and it's airport in the horror region. while rebels in romeo say, they've sees the town of can we say both strategic points on the highway to add a saba, if you have is prime minister abbey, i met is called on all citizens to mobilize in the fight against a guy and forces the armies been fighting the trigger people's liberation front for nearly a year. now, tens of thousands of civilians have been displaced by that conflicts. as your
