Scottish Climate Justice Fund is doubled

The Scottish Government today announced it will double its funding to help reduce the impact of climate change on the world’s poorest communities.  The announcement coincided with the first international conference on Climate Justice organised by the Scottish Government and the Mary Robinson Foundation for Climate Justice.  

Tom Ballantine, Chair of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland  said:

“It is great to see Scotland setting a positive example to other wealthy nations by reconfirming its commitment to the Climate Justice Fund with the additional money announced today. This will enable Scotland to provide urgently needed support to people living in poverty in developing countries who are already struggling to plant and harvest their crops in the face of increasingly unpredictable and extreme weather.
 
“In the run up to the UN’s climate change summit in Poland next month, other wealthy industrialised nations also need commit to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in line with scientific advice and provide the urgent funding that is needed to help those who are being hit first and hardest by climate change.”
