Funding shortfall will not impact COP 17 quality – Minister

International Relations and Cooperation Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane said she was confident that South Africa would host an adequate seventeenth conference of the parties (COP 17) on climate change in Durban in November and December, despite a shortage of funds.

“I promise we are ready [to host COP 17],” she emphasised on Friday, adding that South Africa could “reach out to friends” for financial support, particularly from what she termed “progressive” countries that placed emphasis on dealing with climate change challenges.
