Environment-related grants from developed countries must be raised: RI

No surprises from the President of Indonesia there then.

Just FYI. The UK alone gave £17 million pounds to Indonesia between 2004-09 and when asked, the relevant British Ministry

has been unable to identify a single thing, not one, the money has either created, saved or produced. i.e. There is nothing

to show for the £17 million expenditure.

It's much the same with EU and USAid money.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said Friday in Copenhagen that developed countries must raise their environment-related grants to developing countries.

"Right now, the grants are not enough," Yudhoyono told a press conference aired by TVOne. "We even mention that the grants should reach US$25-35 billion a year in 2012."

Yudhoyono, who is in Copenhagen to attend the UN Climate Change conference, also said that developing countries must continue their efforts to reduce gas emission.

"Indonesia, for example, is committed to reducing gas emission by 26 percent in 2020," he added.
