Countdown to 2020

Fund for ‘climate justice’ to be launched

Scotland will launch a Climate Justice Fund this week to help some of the world’s poorest communities tackle the impact of climate change, it was announced today.

First Minister Alex Salmond will be joined by Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland and former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to announce details of the fund. This will deliver on the Scottish Government manifesto commitment to co-ordinate a climate adaptation fund.
