Developed countries today published a roadmap which shows how the collective goal of providing $100 billion per year by 2020 to support developing countries tackle climate change will be met. 

 
In reaction, Maeve McLynn, Finance and Subsidies Policy Coordinator at CAN Europe said:
 
“The long-awaited climate finance road map is a step in the right direction towards capturing efforts to scale up much needed financial support for climate action. However, the road map remains blurred when it comes to scaling up adequate support for adaptation and loss and damage or innovative ways to generate additional public finance. Donor countries must use the positive steps made in this road map to keep their eye on the balI. Impacts of recent extreme weather events on vulnerable communities remind us that much more will be needed to ensure adequate support is provided to those who need it the most.”
