Dec. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Efforts to help poorer nations adapt to climate change and reduce greenhouse-gas emissions would receive $1.3 billion under a year-end spending plan approved by U.S. congressional negotiators.

Могло быть и хуже: Funding approved by Congress falls short of President Barack Obama’s request for $1.5 billion.
