Climate Finance Commitments
The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change recognises countries common but differentiated responsibilities to address climate change, and the importance of providing developing countries with finance, technology and capacity building support to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change. In the 2009 Copenhagen Accord, and confirmed in the Cancun Decision, Durban Platform, developed countries collectively pledged Fast Start Finance approaching USD 30 billion in the period 2010 to 2012, with the goal of increasing finance from public and private sources to USD100 billion per year by 2020, confirmed in the 2012 Doha Gateway.
