Which country is next in line for a US$1.5 billion UN deal to end a devastating drought?

Posted August 09, 2019 08:16:16 In an unexpected move, the United States is inching closer to signing a $1.4 billion UN treaty to end the worst drought in history, but only if Ecuador meets a key condition.

The United States, which is negotiating the deal with Ecuador, will have to agree to an extension of the drought-reduction mandate until 2026, said US Ambassador David Stavins.

But with the United Nations deadline approaching, there’s no rush to agree on an extension, said Stavin.

He added that the United State “can’t wait to get on with it.”

“The United States recognizes the urgent need to implement the 2015 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to reduce the risks of extreme weather and climate change.

And that’s why the US has supported the effort to bring the drought under control,” he said.

The drought in Ecuador is the worst in the world.

Its total population has been reduced to about 13 million, the majority of them under the age of 5.

The region is suffering from extreme droughts that have killed more than 100,000 people, the worst of which has occurred since 2016.

The worst drought is in the northern part of the country, including the Amazon basin, where the drought has killed more that 100,0000 people.

About 90 per cent of the region is currently suffering from a drought of at least 5 per cent.

The country has also suffered a severe drought that has killed between 10 and 15 per cent more people than in 2015.

The latest data on the number of deaths and injuries are expected to be released later this month.

The U.S. delegation will be visiting the country next week to try to broker a deal, said a senior U.N. official.

“The U.D.

N is also hopeful that we can come to an agreement with Ecuador that will support the U.W.A.C. and other efforts,” the official said.

“We hope to see progress on the drought extension agreement next week, as we continue to work closely with the country on these issues.”

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the U,S.

strategy with reporters.

“If we can get this deal done, we are hopeful that it will be done as quickly as possible,” the U.,S.

official said, adding that the US. has a commitment to supporting the UW.

S.-Ecuador agreement on climate change that was signed in 2015, and the United Kingdom is also on board.

The official said that if the U-S.

and the UN. were able to reach an agreement that is “comprehensive, robust and sustainable,” “that will help bring the world to a tipping point.”

In an interview with CBC News on Wednesday, Ecuador’s president, Rafael Correa, told CBC News he hopes the United Sates and the UN will reach an extension agreement to extend the drought’s mandate for at least 2026.

Correa said he had asked the U S to “get this done as soon as possible.”

Correa has said that the drought is the biggest environmental catastrophe in the history of the world and has blamed climate change for the deaths and the damage.

The last drought of that magnitude in Ecuador was in the 1990s, which was also the last year that it experienced a drought.

Correas presidency has been plagued by corruption allegations.

The corruption case against him was dropped last year, and he was re-elected last month.

“They are trying to push us to give up.

And I know that if we don’t do that, it will have devastating consequences,” Correa told CBC’s Stephen Quinn.

“I am convinced that if Ecuador is able to deliver on the promises made by our government and our international partners, we will be able to overcome this challenge and bring the worst disaster in the planet to an end.”

He added: “We have the technology, we have the capacity.

We have the water.

We are at the very start of a new era.”

The U S and the World Bank have announced a $300 million project to develop the country’s Amazon basin and its agricultural and coastal areas.

The deal also includes a commitment from the United Nations and the European Union to spend $100 million annually on developing climate resilience measures in the region.

The agreement was reached at a high-level meeting in New York last week.

It will include a pledge by the United Nation to increase climate-smart investments in the Amazon region, as well as measures to boost the economic impact of the water infrastructure.
