  20 actors you didn’t know got their start as models After they hit it big, a lot of actors become spokesmodels for brands. For some, modelling and working in a photo shoot setting is something entirely new. For others, it feels like a blast from the past. It turns out, plenty of Hollywood’s hottest stars discovered their love for the camera in modelling careers before later transitioning into acting.

He noted in his speech that developing countries are the main victims of climate change, with an insufficient adaptability and external support in the face of global warming.

"Consequently, developing countries, in particular, need technical and financial support," added Mr. Xie.

On the one hand, China urges developed countries to respect their commitments and "enlarge the cake" in terms of climate funding, he noted. On the other hand, China helps developing countries to improve their climate adaptation capacities through South-South cooperation.

The fruit of South-South Cooperation of China with other developing countries on climate change is "visible, tangible and effective", which is hailed and highly appreciated by developing countries, said Zhao Yingmin, Head of the Chinese delegation at COP27, during the forum.

During the forum, Simon Stiell, executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, said that South-South cooperation was essential to achieve the objectives set by the Paris Agreement.

Thanks to South-South cooperation, "we can build a more inclusive, more resilient and more sustainable future," he noted.

Mr. Stiell praised the efforts made by the Chinese government to strengthen South-South cooperation, in particular the South-South cooperation aid created by China in partnership with the United Nations program for Development in order to support recovery and reconstruction in several countries after extreme climatic disasters.
