Small island states have urged wealthy nations to provide more funding to help them counter the threats posed by climate change.

The appeal was made at a UN meeting that began on Monday. The International Conference on Small Island Developing States is held once a decade. The Caribbean island nation of Antigua and Barbuda is hosting this year's meeting, which is being attended by about 100 countries, including Japan. The meeting is due to end on Thursday. The participants are expected to adopt an action plan for the next decade.
