Climate Change: Finance

Volume 505: debated on Wednesday 3 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what proportion of the UK's fast-start financing for climate change adaptation will be drawn from his Department's existing budgets. (314906)

In 2010-11, around 60-65 per cent. of the UK's fast-start financing for adaptation will come from The Department for International Development's (DFID's) budget.

The departmental budgets for 2011-12 and 2012-13 have not yet been decided.

The UK remains committed to providing additional post 2012 financing on top of the 0.7 per cent. official development assistance (ODA) commitment and to limiting the share of our ODA for climate change to no more than 10 per cent.
