CIDSE Highlights No.9, November-December 2012
CIDSE's Emilie Johann talks to RTCC about climate finance in at the Doha climate conference.
A crucial stumbling block here in Doha will be the issue of climate finance. With Fast Start Finance (FSF) due to draw to a close at the end of this year, the most vulnerable communities feeling the brunt of climate change are now rightly asking: what financing plans do developed countries have up their sleeves to address the urgent need for climate action?
As European leaders gather in Brussels to discuss the EU 2014-2020 budget, CIDSE calls upon the EU to dedicate FTT resources to honour development and climate commitments with FTT revenues.
Originally conceived to support the poorest, there is a real risk that FTT revenues will be used for future financial sector bail-outs.
