Helping the most vulnerable countries cope with Climate change
Today the UK government announced £290 million in new funding to help the most vulnerable countries cope with the impact of climate change and called on other wealthy nations to go further to help those most at risk.
- Climate change disproportionately affects those already most vulnerable – and we must act now to stop it from devastating communities in some of the poorest parts of the world.
- That is why the UK government announced £290 million in new funding to support those most at risk from rising global temperatures – including £274 million to fund climate action, conservation and sustainable development in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as funding for other developing countries and to tackle climate related disasters.
- Britain is calling for other countries at COP26 to step up their contributions to sustainable development and a climate-resilient future for all, so that no one is left behind in the fight against climate change.
