Race to host Green Climate Fund

Race to host Green Climate Fund

Six countries – Germany, Mexico, Namibia, Poland, South Korea and Switzerland – have put themselves forward to host the United Nations’ Green Climate Fund, a fund that will aim to help developing countries in their battles with climate change.

The world’s poorest nations could receive up to $100 billion a year through the project, and the decision about which country will host it will be made in autumn.

Last month, we wrote about the Pacific Island nations that were fighting a losing battle with climate change. Despite being the ones most affected by it, they’re also the ones who can do the least to prevent it.

As one of the biggest economies in the world, the UK therefore has a duty to support the ones most in need of help. This also goes for superpowers, such as the USA and China.
