More than a million refugees in need of food, water and shelter
EU Environment Ministers’ meeting
Ministers will agree the EU position for the upcoming round of UN climate talks in Doha. On the agenda will be a discussion on how the new Durban Platform - agreed in December 2011 - will lead to a new legally binding agreement to reduce global emissions in a fair and equitable way, taking into account historical emissions as well as new economic realities. Environment ministers will also face growing questions about the lack of a satisfactory response to how much money developing countries can expect from climate finance once ‘Fast Start Finance’ (2010-2012) runs out at the end of this year.
