Vulnerable nations lay out demands for climate talks


LONDON (AP) — Dozens of nations particularly vulnerable to the effects of global warming have laid out their key demands ahead of the upcoming U.N. climate summit. These include getting rich countries to commit to fulfill and step up their pledges of financial assistance to help them . The Climate Vulnerable Forum also wants more frequent updates on national plans for cutting greenhouse gas emissions and the development of a system to compensate poor countries for climate-related damages.
