Aunque las voces de las comunidades más pequeñas no podrán ser escuchadas directamente, nuestros lienzos hablarán por nosotros". Chris Dala, Malaita, Islas Solomón.

Today at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bali, Oxfam launched "South Voices", a video with testimonies from 63 people from developing countries who are already feeling the impacts of climate change.

The people featured in the video are already taking action to adapt to climate change, by making drastic changes to the way that they live their lives, but it is not enough, weather patterns are changing too fast. They need support from the rich countries that contributed most to climate change.

Statements by Antonio Hill on the United Nations Climate Change Conference that has ended today in Bali, Indonesia.

"Bali has for the first time drawn up a roadmap for all countries to tackle climate change. But a handful of powerful countries have relegated the overwhelming scientific evidence to a footnote.

With just three days left to the conference closes, Oxfam blitzed delegates at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bali, with a special photographic exhibition and calendar called "It's up to UNow".

The photos, are messages from people in developing countries, who are already having to adapt and live with the impacts of climate change, as well as people from rich countries, who are taking personal action to reduce their contribution to climate change.
