We’re now in week 3 of climate + human rights dominating the foreign press

A last round of COP + Egyptian climate news in the international press: The Washington Post is out with another piece criticizing Egypt’s organization of the climate summit as “chaotic,” while the National takes a closer look at the green businesses exhibiting at the conference’s Green Zone. The Post is also out with a story on how ancient Egyptians also struggled with climate change (though not the manmade kind), while Reuters has more coverage on how climate is impacting farmers in the Nile Delta.

Human rights still in the spotlight: Four UN experts put out a statement calling on Egypt to “end all acts of harassment and intimidation and ensure the safety and full participation of human rights defenders and civil society” at COP and beyond. Meanwhile, the international press continues to cover updates on the health of imprisoned activist Alaa Abdel Fattah, whose family said he is in a weak condition after ending his months-long hunger strike.
