Oxfam called on the US to join Europe in laying its climate finance cards on the table as international climate talks opened in Barcelona today.

Press Release

International climate talks (in Bonn, Germany 1 – 12 June) must ensure that a climate finance proposal meets the needs of the world’s most vulnerable countries, and negotiations must move forward quickly if a global deal is to be secured in time to avoid a human catastrophe.
