Cancun: Women added to Climate Fund text
"The last minute addition to the text to ensure that the new Climate Fund should represent women is a critical step towards ensuring that climate funding reaches those who need it most.
"However, a commitment to ensure that at least 50 per cent of climate funding is dedicated to adaptation is missing. The delivery of adaptation finance to vulnerable communities already affected by climate change has been neglected so far. The new Climate Fund must close the adaptation gap to address this so that communities can protect themselves against the climate impacts of today and tomorrow."
