Cancun wrap up: campaigners bring progress to Cancun Climate Talks

The UN climate summit in Cancun on Nov 29 - Dec 10, 2010, saw good progress towards Oxfam's ultimate goal of a fair, ambitious and legally binding deal. The agreement gave a lifeline to the Kyoto Protocol - the world's only legally binding agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Negotiators also agreed to set up a global Climate Fund that will support the world's poorest people fight the effects of climate change. While there's still much work to be done, the progress in Cancun was a major step forwards. Over half a million people joined with Oxfam in 2010, calling for urgent action on climate change. Campaigning together means our voice was heard in Cancun and has helped us Sow the Seed for a fair climate deal.
