This report argues that global negotiations related to global climate change and poverty reduction have not been consistently linked at the thematic or programmatic level. According to the report, missing from global negotiations are global efforts to design, finance and implement programmatic and policy initiatives that link needs-based and context-specific mitigation and adaptation efforts in developing countries with broader development goals, including poverty reduction.
