Negotiations on the conclusion of a major UN report on averting climate disaster were closed more than two days late Sunday after a dispute over how the money would be paid, officials told the AFP news agency.

Over two weeks of gruelling negotiations nearly 200 nations have struggled to finalize a top-level policy-makers’ summary that summarizes the hundreds of pages of the IPCC’ s evaluation.

Where the latest climate science and its effects were presented in the previous piece of the report, this report is expected to include a list of solutions that will help the world reduce its emissions.

Given the fierce political scramble to coalesce policy at the most senior levels, some fear the message has been diluted.
