UK commits £85 million to tackle deforestation and cut methane emissions

At COP28 in Dubai, energy security secretary Claire Coutinho has committed over £85 million to tackle climate change.

The package will be used to protect the world’s rainforests, encourage investment in clean energy technologies and help developing countries cut their carbon emissions.

The funding includes up to £35 million to protect the Amazon rainforest through Brazil’s dedicated Amazon Fund.

Up to £40 million will be spent to expand the UK’s Climate Finance Accelerator, which aims to provide practical ways to help countries finance and deliver their climate commitments under the Paris Agreement.

Energy security secretary Claire Coutinho said: "The UK is a world leader in the drive to net zero, so it is vital we support our international allies like Brazil in meeting their climate ambitions.

"That’s why we have pledged up to £35 million to help stop deforestation in the Amazon, making the UK one of the largest contributors to the Amazon Fund.

"We will also partner with Brazil at COP28 and draw on our combined strengths to develop alternative fuels like hydrogen, advance green technologies and drive global action to cut emissions."
