Participants at a Paris summit on finance and the climate have stopped short of a deal to create a tax on greenhouse gas emissions produced from international shipping.
The two-day gathering of world leaders and finance bosses, aimed at tackling climate change and poverty, ended on Friday without a major announcement.
French President Emmanuel Macron was the host of the Summit for a New Global Financing Pact. The US was represented by US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and climate envoy John Kerry.
Other attendees included China’s Prime Minister Li Qiang, Brazil’s President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, World Bank head Ajay Banga and IMF President Kristalina Georgieva.
