Deciding our future in Copenhagen: will the world rise to the challenge of climate change?

The commitments made by countries to cut carbon emissions have put the world on the threshold of hitting the target of limiting the rise in global temperatures to 2 degrees C. This report, 'Deciding our future in Copenhagen: will the world rise to the challenge of climate change', says that politicians have made 'major advances and a gathering momentum' over the past few weeks and months. It says that rich countries must provide as much as $200bn a year to poorer countries to help them adapt to and mitigate climate change.
