Infighting leaves EU with no nominees for climate fund
EU member states fail to agree who should represent Europe on climate fund's board.
The European Union’s member states failed to agree a common position on nominations to the board of the UN’s Green Climate Fund by a deadline on Saturday (31 March). Member states will now submit individual nominations, weakening the EU’s negotiating position.
The fund, created at the 2010 climate summit in Cancun and signed in Durban in December, will have 24 people on the board – half from developed countries and half from developing countries. European countries were expected to get six or seven places on the board.
