A desperate and largely unknown humanitarian crisis is deteriorating in the Lake Chad Basin region of West Africa, forcing millions of people to flee their homes and leaving millions more in need of humanitarian assistance. Oxfam is providing life-saving support but help is urgently needed to prevent the crisis turning into a catastrophe.
The Copenhagen summit was a major disappointment -- there's no denying it. A historic opportunity to build a better future for us all, especially for poor communities, was shamefully missed.

Oxfam's Charlie Powell reviews the outcome of the Copenhagen Summit and what Oxfam is pushing for on emission cuts and climate adaptation finance. Charlie outlines how we're continuing to pile the pressure on throughout 2010 -- and how you can get involved.
