At international climate negotiations in Doha, Qatar, November 30, the G77, a group of 77 developing countries that are members of the United Nations, requested that wealthier countries commit to increasing the amount of financial assistance offered for climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts. The G77 proposed that developed countries raise $60 billion a year for climate assistance starting next year, and that they increase the amount on offer to $100 billion by 2020.
