Climate change continues to wreak havoc on the lives of many of the world’s poorest communities. Droughts are becoming more intense, making it ever more difficult for people to feed their families. Likewise, increasing floods and severe weather events in many parts of the world means crops, homes and livelihoods are being destroyed. Climate change is a major threat to all of us – but particularly for millions of people living in poverty.

World leaders didn’t do enough at last year’s Copenhagen climate summit, but some progress was made. Help us keep up the pressure to achieve a fair, ambitious and binding climate change agreement.

The Bonn UN climate meeting started this week in Germany. This is our first big chance in 2010 to hold decision makers to account on the promises they made in Copenhagen, and ensure they invest in the future for developing countries.
