The UK Government is committing to substantially increase the amount of funding we are providing to help the most vulnerable countries protect themselves from the effects of climate change.

Helping others   Billions from the UK for other countries
The UK’s money for climate activities will be increased by at least 50%, to a further £5.8 billion of funding from April 2016 to March 2021, including at least £1.76bn in 2020, from within the existing ODA budget.

Energy and Climate Change Secretary Amber Rudd said: “Climate change is one of the most serious threats we face, not just to the environment, but to our economic prosperity, poverty eradication and global security, hitting developing countries the hardest.

"To ensure a more secure and prosperous future for us all, the UK is playing its part by helping some of the most vulnerable communities become more resilient to climate change and by supporting the developing world to take the clean energy path to growth and prosperity rather than the high carbon route”.
