An agreement of $10bn a year in fast track financing for the next three years and $100bn a year by 2020 for poor countries to cope with climate change must come over and above existing aid promises, Africa advocacy group ONE said today. MORE
Achieving the health Millennium Development Goals by 2015 will require a significant financing increase for both the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis & Malaria and the GAVI Alliance in 2010. Through their innovative approaches, broad-based partnerships and targeted investments, each of these mechanisms is working in a unique and complementary way to improve health in the world's poorest countries.

Warm words alone won't fight poverty or climate change. While the hosts can be commended for trying, the G20 collectively have failed to ensure that the resources to help the poorest countries adapt to climate change would be additional to existing development assistance. MORE
Finance Ministers from G20 countries meeting in Scotland this weekend are being urged to keep the world's poorest high on their agenda as they discuss how to help developing countries adapt to the disastrous impacts of climate change - and contribute to stemming its rise. MORE
Climate change is not a crisis of Africa's making, yet it is African people, especially the poorest, who will suffer the first and the worst. Not only does it add yet another challenge to those struggling to combat extreme poverty and disease by exacerbating the conditions of poverty, but it threatens to erode the gains that have been made in recent years. ONE urges global policymakers to keep the poorest in mind as they negotiate a global climate deal at Copenhagen in December 2009. These negotiations will focus on reaching consensus on how to respond to climate change worldwide and resolving that key question is of critical importance to the African continent. As part of these talks however, it is also critical that policymakers take special consideration of Africa-both to address its disproportionate need to adapt to impending climate change but also to work with the continent as a mitigation partner going forward.
