The government said it remained in the dark over how to apply for climate change funds that were promised by rich nations at the recent Copenhagen summit.\No clear mechanism to establish how such funds will be disbursed has been established following the completion of the summit in December 2009.Experts warned that unanswered questions about the funding could breed mistrust among countries tackling climate change.“We have sent a letter to the UN asking for an explanation on the mechanisms to apply for the climate change funding,” the Indonesian delegate to the climate talks, Wandojo Siswanto, told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.A non-binding Copenhagen accord stipulates that rich nations will provide US$30 billion between 2010 and 2012 to developing nations  to mitigate climate change. Rich nations also promised to scale up climate funding to developing countries to $100 billion
