EQ in Top 10 Countries most vulnerable to climate change

The global community can provide a very limited amount of funds to those countries dubbed as being "most vulnerable" to climate change and judging which countries fall under this category has proven to be very difficult. Things such as weather-related threats and the countries' ability to cope with the potential disaster must be taken under consideration. This issue was presented to the United Nations at the climate change conference in Cancun, Mexico where the G-77 was faced with defining what is means for a country to be "vulnerable". China ranked as most vulnerable, central african nations, including Equatorial Guinea made the top 10 of most vulnerable countries list, too. A Green Fund conference is scheduled for this month in Bonn, Germany to further discuss funding options.
