Asked by: Ross Greer, West Scotland, Scottish Green Party
Date lodged: 18 November 2021

Question

To ask the Scottish Government what role it will have in deciding how the £2 million of funding that it has committed to addressing climate-related loss and damage will be allocated.

Current status: Answered by Mairi McAllan on 3 December 2021


Answer

The £2 million committed to Loss and Damage will be financed through Scottish Government’s Climate Justice Fund. £1 million has been allocated to a grant partnership with the Climate Justice Resilience Fund to help some of the world’s most vulnerable communities adapt to climate change, tackle structural inequalities and recover from climate-induced loss and damage. In this and in programming the remaining £1 million, the Scottish Government will work collaboratively with partners to identify and address the needs of communities suffering the acutest impacts, to establish learning and best practice on Loss and Damage programming and finance, and to create further momentum on loss and damage.
