For the period 2007-2013 European countries still massively financed coal overseas, with a total of $7 billion– $1 billion a year, despite several claim to be climate leaders.

In this briefing paper, WWF calls on European countries to immediately and publicly end their public support for coal overseas, through Multilateral Development Banks, national development finance institutions and Export Credit Agencies.
