Rich nations 'slow to start climate aid flow'

Date : 7th October 2010, Source : The Guardian (UK)



Rich countries have been slow to launch the "fast start" climate funds promised at Copenhagen, the world's least developed nations complained today as negotiators wrestled with a finance package to keep the UN climate talks process on track. World leaders agreed last year to inject $30bn (19bn) into forestry and other efforts to tackle climate change between 2010 and 2012. Ahead of bigger, more long-term financing, the "fast-start" money was designed to build trust among poorer countries that produce very miniscule greenhouse gas emissions but suffer many of the worst consequences.
