Brown offers 1.2bn in a bid to break climate deadlock

Date : 15th December 2009, Source : The Independent (UK)



Gordon Brown is preparing to offer more money from Britain to help the world's poorest countries combat climate change in an attempt to break the deadlock at the Copenhagen summit. Aides to the Prime Minister, who has already announced 1.5bn over the next three years for African and other nations affected by global warming, said he is also planning to contribute to a separate 15.3bn global fund to reduce deforestation. A payment of similar proportions would mean an extra 1.2bn coming from British taxpayers.
