"While there’s progress in some areas, the text badly needs strengthened in many others, esp accountability on pathway to 1.5 and loss & damage."

The First Minister previously urged Boris Johnson to head north of the border once more on Friday, saying that 'every shoulder was needed at the wheel'. 

The latest draft, published more than 13 hours after the UN climate summit in Glasgow was due to have finished, requests countries to “revisit and strengthen” their 2030 emissions-cutting targets by the end of 2022.

This is seen as key to keeping the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5C, beyond which the worst impacts of extreme weather and rising seas will be felt, within reach, although it does not specifically refer to the 1.5C goal.

It also calls on governments to revisit the targets “as necessary to align with the Paris Agreement temperature goal by the end of 2022, taking into account different national circumstances”.
