The UK Government and other wealthy nations pledged $100 billion a year from 2020 to the countries most affected by the climate crisis. But the full amount is yet to materialise.
People in poverty around the world, particularly black, indigenous and other people of colour, as well as marginalised groups such as women and people living with disability, are paying the highest price for these delays, yet they did the least to cause the climate emergency.
It’s time for wealthy nations to deliver on their climate finance promises.
As we approach the COP27 climate conference in November, we’re raising our voices with the ONE Campaign. We’re calling on the UK Government to follow through on their finance pledges, to keep climate finance at the top of their agenda and to use their global influence to encourage other wealthy nations to do the same. We are also joining with Tearfund USA supporters, who are writing to President Joe Biden for the same reason.
