The global North is responsible for climate change and owes a climate debt to the global South. Climate finance is about the payment of that debt, as well as enabling developing countries to adopt low carbon societies and increase communities’ resilience to climate change.
Here we provide:
- A summary of our demands and an ethical criteria matrix in relation to climate finance transfers.
- A summary explaining how the climate debt can be paid
- A position paper for UNFCCC COP15 in Copenhagen, December 2009.
