In some ways you have to quite admire Giampiero Ventura. When Italy failed to make it out of the group stage at the 2014 World Cup, Cesare Prandelli resigned on the spot.

“I’m not resigning because I haven’t spoken with the (federation) president,” Ventura said. “We need to evaluate things. We’ll see. I’ll talk with the federation and confront the problem. I feel I have to apologise to Italians after the result.” No kidding.

So what will a World Cup without Italy look like? Most of us will simply not be aware of such a concept, what with them being fixtures at each of the last 14 tournaments. Admittedly this was not an Italian side with stellar names of the past: there was no Paolo Rossi, no Andrea Pirlo , no Gianni Rivera , but there was a Leather Statement Clutch Jungle by VIDA VIDA T5WFHHq

The head of the Green Climate Fund, set up by the United Nations in the fight against global warming, stepped down abruptly after less than two years on the job, leaving the organization’s future in doubt.

Howard Bamsey, an Australian diplomat who served as the GCF’s executive director since January 2017, resigned after a “difficult” meeting in which no new projects were approved, according to a statement released after the gathering in Songdo, South Korea.

“This has been a very difficult and disappointing board meeting for all of us, but most importantly for those people who are most vulnerable to climate change impacts, and who depend on the activities of the Fund,” Lennart Bage, chairman of the GCF’s meeting, said in the statement.

Established in 2010, the fund has committed to $3.7 billion of projects aimed at reducing greenhouse gases and helping nations overcome the impact of climate change. It has struggled since U.S. President Donald Trump vowed to slash funding for the initiative as well as other environmental projects.

“Everyone said this is the low point,” said Jasmine Hyman, an environmental consultant at the British firm E Co. who attended the meeting. “This was a disappointing meeting but hopefully it’s a canary in the mine and not a nail in the coffin.”

Bamsey was the fund’s second executive director and had a mandate of expanding the loans the organization makes to green projects in developing nations. Most of the four-day meeting was spent discussing agenda items and how replace another envoy who had been representing developing countries, according to Hyman.

“I have been considering the best timing for my departures from the secretariat,” Bamsey said in a letter released by the GCF. “Pressing personal issues meant I would simply not be able to stay until the end of next year which is when replenishment is likely to conclude.”
