A draft paper on climate change from the World Bank and other development agencies has been criticised for not going far enough. Friends of the Earth International and Tear Fund said the report “does not suggest that industrialised countries need to address vulnerability outside the confines of their ODA policy”, for example in trade policies. Global Commons Institute focused on the need for any reports on this topic to explicitly link their analysis to the overall requirement for climate change prevention/mitigation to avoid giving the impression that mitigation is easy or economically viable.
