International Climate Financing
The Government of Canada is committed to support climate change action in developing
countries, delivering $2.65 billion between now and 2020.
Climate change is one of the greatest threats facing humanity with implications
on health, agriculture, economy, trade, and transportation and energy infrastructure
that is being felt by all countries. Developing countries, particularly the poorest
and most vulnerable, are the hardest hit by climate change and many have limited
capacity to prevent and cope with its consequences. Canada is doing its part to
ensure a sustainable future for all, including by supporting developing countries
transition to green economies and build climate resilience.

- Canada’s participation in the Green Climate Fund is aimed at supporting projects, programs, policies, and other activities to address climate change in developing countries.
