COP17 deal disastrous for world's poor
The UN climate talks went into overtime with countries negotiating late into Saturday night, but sadly the outcome is very disappointing.
The talks have delayed action to cut emissions until 2020 – this is just too late for people and planet.
As Christian Aid's expert on the UN talks, Mohamed Adow, says, 'action against climate change in 2020 will come a decade too late for poor people on the frontline - they urgently need it now.
'This Durban outcome is a compromise which saves the climate talks but endangers people living in poverty.'
