Cancun: What fell short and what it could mean for the world's poor
The United Nations Climate Change Conference in December concluded with a lower level of success than anticipated. Allowing countries to make voluntary pledges to cut emissions is a cause for concern for many who say that levels of commitment will be much lower than necessary.
What it could mean for the world's poor:
A lack of cooperation between developed and developing countries during the December talks could take its toll on the world’s poor. An increase in weather extremes could mean greater loss for those living in developing nations; a 2007 International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report shows that a greater frequency of drought and flooding could be a result of climate change.
