Should richer countries be doing more to help poorer countries prepare for the effects of climate change?

Many would argue that the “rich” world is mostly responsible for climate change (although that situation is changing). Poorer countries, which have contributed less to the problem, are less able to prepare themselves for the problems associated with climate change, such as rising sea levels, and are already suffering the effects.

The UK government is giving £75million to Bangladesh to help it develop ways of coping with climate change, but is it enough?
