He congratulated Stoltenberg on his recent appointment as co-chair of the United Nations High Level Advisory Group
of Climate Change Financing, and welcomed his personal commitment to this issue.
Meeting for the first time in London on 31 March 2010, the United Nations High Level Advisory Group
on Climate Change Financing is expected to discuss implementation of the financial commitments made during the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen (7 to 19 December 2009) to help developing countries combat the effects of climate change.
The panel was set after UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on the British and Ethiopian governments to form a high level advisory group
to help finance the world's climate change programs.
