Global institutions have failed on climate change: Nauru

Global institutions have failed on climate change: Nauru

Updated 27 September 2012, 9:38 AEST

The President of Nauru has told the United Nations General Assembly that the organisation is awash in unfulfilled promises.

Sprent Dabwido says the failure of multilateral institutions could not be more evident than in the ongoing climate change negotiations.

A new report on climate change says more than 100 million people will die by 2030 if the world fails to tackle global warming.

More than 90 per cent of those deaths will occur in developing countries -- and are a direct result of human and economic impacts.

The report was commissioned by a partnership of 20 developing countries currently threatened by rapid climate change.
