Reaction to draft of Paris climate deal

This afternoon at the UN climate talks in Paris a draft of the agreement was published, two days before the deal is set to be reached.  Adriano Campolina, Chief Executive of ActionAid International, said:

“The draft agreement continues to leave developing nations hanging.  There are just two days to reach a deal that is fair and just for the world’s poorest.  With what’s currently on the table, rich nations are still holding the purse strings, unwilling to commit to their fair share of action to save the people and their planet.”
