Martin Khor

On May 15, 2009, the GLI invited Martin Khor of the South Centre to meet with trade unionists from the New York area to discuss climate protection issues from a developing country perspective. He spoke of the impact that climate change is already having on working and communities in the global south as well as the need for the US and other developed countries to provide international financing to developing countries for adaption and the development of clean technologies.
