"No deal without adaptation funding"

Executive Director of Oxfam International

Winnie Byanyima

“It is real – we see floods, long droughts, where crops rot in ground because of extremes. We see people earning less and less from farming. It’s real and ordinary people are talking about it”

 

Oxfam’s position:
-Big increase in adaptation finance: $35bn by 2020 and $100bn by 2030
-A strong mechanism to review and equitably increase national climate plans every 5 years
-Loss and Damage: COP must agree to address impacts to which it is not possible to adapt
-Ambitious and equitable long term greenhouse gas reductions goal
-Strong legal framework offering certainty over coming century, based on human rights
