Africa being left out of climate aid: Development bank

With clutch climate talks approaching in December, world leaders are scrambling to come up with pledges toward the target of $100 billion a year by 2020 to fight global warming -- a make-or-break promise in the arduous negotiations to reach a comprehensive deal on cutting carbon emissions. But the development bank's president, Akinwumi Adesina, said the world needs to rethink how it spends that money.
