Climate change

In 2015, more than 600,000 people took to the streets in 175 countries around the world to call for a strong deal at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change meeting in Paris. As a collective effort across the Oxfam confederation, we secured 1.3m signatories to our campaign, which was handed to President Hollande. Over 190 countries reached an agreement to limit the rise in global temperatures to less than 2°C, but there is more to do to provide enough funds to ensure millions of vulnerable people can prepare for and respond to increasing future climatic events.
