China and the United States have this week boosted momentum ahead of November's key COP26 climate summit with new energy and funding pledges to tackle planetary warming, but analysts said they lacked detail and far more was needed to meet global goals.

The leaders of the world's two largest economies announced separate measures at the U.N. General Assembly (UNGA) Tuesday, with China pledging to end overseas coal financing and the U.S. saying it would double climate funding for developing countries.

The announcements were hailed as important ahead of the COP26 U.N. climate talks in Glasgow, but green groups said both countries — the world's two largest carbon polluters — and other major emitters needed to raise their game in the coming weeks.
