Urgent action needed now in final countdown of Cancun climate talks
On the last day of the UN Climate Change Summit in Cancun, Oxfam will unveil a giant sand sculpture of Mexican farmers calling for concrete action for the sake of the millions of poor people around the world who are already feeling the effects of climate change.
Oxfam senior climate change adviser Antonio Hill will give an assessment of the talks and what needs to happen on the last day to get a deal to help the millions of people already affected by climate change. Interviews in English and Spanish.
Antonio Hill said: “Today is crunch-time for the climate talks in Cancun. We must see decisions that lay a solid foundation to a legally binding deal, not one built on quick sand.”
