The development group Oxfam has castigated the efforts of the G8 on climate change in the run up to this week’s meeting, as “all talk no action”. Oxfam says that the focus on climate change at the G8 Summit at Gleneagles a year ago “was instrumental in raising public awareness of the issue. But the processes set in motion are happening nowhere near fast enough to produce the necessary reductions in greenhouse gases”.
It is part of the development group’s overall assessment of how the G8 have lived up to their promises they gave at Gleneagles, in terms of progress on aid, debt and poverty reduction. You can read the report here.
