Ox­fam New Zealand says the Gov­ern­ment’s fi­nance to­wards Pa­cific cli­mate change is busi­ness fo­cused and does not ben­e­fit fam­i­lies in need. Rachael Le Mesurier, Ox­fam New Zealand’s ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor, said be­cause of this the Gov­ern­ment needed to change its fund­ing fo­cus within Pa­cific cli­mate fi­nance. “While New Zealand’s role in help­ing Pa­cific com­mu­ni­ties to ac­cess clean, ef­fi­cient en­ergy is help­ful…the Gov­ern­ment’s cli­mate fi­nance model is de­signed to be busi­ness fo­cused, and not to ben­e­fit fam­i­lies liv­ing on the front-line of cli­mate change.” PacNews
