Resource Overview

Nowhere near enough money is being spent on climate change, and the low levels of funding allocated aren’t being targeted to help the worst affected countries deal with the effects, putting billions of lives at risk.

Our global analysis of data on climate finance, water access and climate vulnerability shows that half of countries receive less than £4 per person per year in climate finance for mitigation and adaptation combined. Some of the most vulnerable countries receive significantly less.
