May 2007 Edit

  • G8 countries must act to keep global warming below 2° Celsius and pledge their share of $50bn to help poorest cope with impact, Oxfam, May 29 / Climate change adaption
  • G8 countries fall short on promises, Oxfam. Oxfam reveals that rich countries' target of an increase in overseas aid of $50 billion by 2010, which was agreed at Gleneagles in 2005, will be missed by $30 billion. Oxfam estimates that the projected shortfall, outlined in The World is Still Waiting, would condemn 5 million people to die needlessly from the effects of poverty - most of them will be women and children.
