Durban: Meaningful Progress Can Be Made
Ben Caldicott, Guardian News
Expectations at the UN climate change talks in Durban are low and rightly so.
But meaningful progress could be made. Particularly in the area with perhaps the greatest tangible effect on the real economy: climate finance for developing countries. This is where innovation and concrete action can be advanced via the new multilateral Green Climate Fund (GCF) and through bilateral initiatives, such as the UK government's £2.9bn International Climate Fund (ICF).
