Oxfam reaction on new Sahel partnership

In reaction to today’s announcement at the G7 in Biarritz of a new partnership on the Sahel region led by France and Germany, Oxfam’s spokesperson, Robin Guittard, made the following statement:

G7 Leaders have equal responsibility for the Amazon rain forests fire

In response to the recent Amazon fires burning at a record rate and Macron's recent statement to block the EU trade agreement with Brazil at the G7 meeting, Katia Maia Oxfam Brazil Executive Director said we welcome Macron's warning to the Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro to take firm and immediate actions to save the Amazon forests, but warnings alone do not end fires. But the G7 countries, who are historically responsible for causing the climate crisis, have equal responsibility and must too take action.
