G7 must increase financial support for climate change adaptation – NGO


Ahead of the G7 environment, energy and ocean ministers meeting in Halifax, Canada, humanitarian relief organisation CARE published a comprehensive analysis of the finance provided by the G7 group to developing countries for climate change adaptation and to what extent it promotes gender equality. “The results show that there is an urgent need to increase financial support for climate change adaptation with much stronger gender equality efforts,” says the report.
In a statement issued by her ministry ahead of the meeting, environment minister Svenja Schulze said: “The G7 have a special responsibility not only regarding climate protection. They should also take on a pioneer role in developing solutions for climate change adaptation and support developing countries in their adaptation efforts.”
