In her speech to the United Kingdom Parliament 27 April 2009, Gunilla Carlsson, Minister for International Development Cooperation stated:
To underline the importance of the linkages between climate change and development, in 2007 the Swedish Government launched an international independent Commission on Climate Change and Development. I am honoured to be the chair of this Commission. Our task is to propose action to support climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction among the poorest and most vulnerable countries and communities. There are three issues that I'd like to point out that has been prominent in our discussions:
- how the resilience of vulnerable communities and countries can be strengthened,
- how appropriate institutional and financial architecture for adaptation can be established, and
- how new financial resources can be mobilised.
