Environmental Transformation Fund

Volume 497: debated on Tuesday 13 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change pursuant to the answer of 30 March 2009, Official Report, column 931W, on the Environmental Transformation Fund, if he will place in the Library a copy of the Contribution Arrangement. (289757)

This Contribution Arrangement is between the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, acting jointly through my department and the Department for International Development. We have placed a copy of the Contribution Arrangement in the Library.

It should be noted that as a non-legally binding agreement it is used as a flexible tool to facilitate the UK's contribution to Climate Investment Funds, and may be subject to amendments and revisions as necessary. We have submitted a cover note to this effect.
