Ireland yet to pledge money for Green Climate Fund
Minister Alex White tells Lima conference last year’s €34m is likely to be matched
Minister for Energy and Natural Resources Alex White said the Government would finally publish its Climate Action and Low-Carbon Development Bill this month.
Ireland and Austria are now the only developed countries yet to pledge money for the United Nation’s Green Climate Fund, after both Australia and Belgium announced that they would be contributing €133 million and €50 million respectively.
Minister for Energy and Natural Resources Alex White told the climate conference that Ireland was still “actively exploring all options for scaling up our mobilisation of climate finance, including in relation to the Green Climate Fund”.
