Climate finance will be on the top of the minds of negotiators as the UN conference on climate change at Doha enters the second week on December 3.

Doha Diary

Xie Zhenhua, head of the Chinese delegation at CoP18, Doha said today that finance is at the core of the issue -- without finance, adaptation and mitigation activities in developing nations cannot happen. There is a good news — discussions with ministers of developed nations are leading to an assurance that new finance could be announced during Doha. Mr Zhenhua refused to take names, as he believes the owner of the good news should be the one to announce it.
