Caritas welcomes Cancun climate deal

Catholic World News - December 14, 2010

Caritas Internationalis, the consortium of Catholic relief and development agencies, welcomed the results of the recent Cancun summit on climate change. Negotiators there agreed to a “Green Climate Fund” under which wealthier nations would offer $100 billion in annual aid to impoverished nations to help them deal with the effects of climate change.

While “Cancun delivered a lot less than Caritas had been arguing for,” the Cancun deal was a step towards “a legal binding agreement in future negotiations in South Africa next year,” according to a Caritas press release.
