EU nations get cold feet over climate change fund

(Reuters) - EU nations are dithering over how to fill a multi-billion-euro fund to help tackle climate change, just as the region's executive body hosts talks with countries likely to bear the brunt of extreme weather.
The European Union recommitted to providing 7.2 billion euros $9.4 billion (5.8 billion pounds) for the fund over 2010-12, according to draft conclusions seen by Reuters ahead of a meeting of EU finance ministers next week.
