Harjeet Singh

Harjeet Singh, Emergency Advisor for Asia for ActionAid, explains how climate negotiations are not moving fast enough and that emission reduction targets are neither on the table, or likely to be ambitious enough. He refers to the institutional mechanisms, within adaption, to enable money to move forward, expressing the need for new money which is seen as compensation, not aid with its various conditionalities. He points out that science backs the argument and that developed countries need to accept that. He believes civil society still has a role, particularly in ensuring any deal is fair, despite the behaviour in June.
