UN calls for international fund to aid recovery of climate change

United Nations, Sep 15 (Prensa Latina) The United Nations on Thursday urged international community to establish a fund to compensate losses and damages due to extreme weather events.

The UN Special Rapporteur on protection of human rights in the context of climate change Ian Fry recalled the main emitting nations have denied for too long their responsibility for the environmental suffering.

That must end, he said, after visiting regions most-hit by recent rains and floods in Bangladesh, adding that after seeing devastation first-hand it was very clear to him the burden of climate change should not fall on just one country.

World´s most greenhouse gas emitting nations have a clear obligation under international law to provide funds to help highly vulnerable countries like Bangladesh to recover from climate change impacts, he stressed.

Among most affected population groups, the expert highlighted women, who must walk too long distances to fetch some clean water, putting them at risk of sexual harassment and prevents them from caring for their children and working in agriculture.
