As the climate talks in Durban enter the final day the emerging deal remains uncertain. But the catastrophic climate impacts the world faces if tough and ambitious decisions are not taken within the next 24 hours are crystal clear.
This exciting side event at the COP16 UN Climate Talks, will look at what why setting up a well-resourced and fair Climate Fund in Cancun is doable, desirable and defendable.
Oxfam's EU Climate Change Policy Adviser, Tim Gore, explains the key issues around climate finance and the UN Climate talks, from the October 2010 UN Climate Talks in Tianjin, China, to the December Summit in Cancun.
