star this property answer text <p>We do not allocate money from the ICF specifically to raise awareness of climate change in developing countries.</p><p> </p><p>Nearly all developing countries signed the 2015 Paris Agreement and they continue to be active in the international climate negotiations. The Least Developed Country group (a bloc of 48 nations particularly vulnerable to climate change) were among those calling on the United Nations Secretary General to convene a climate summit in September this year to raise global ambition on tackling climate change. The UK and Egypt, alongside Malawi, Bangladesh, the Netherlands and St Lucia, are leading work to secure international commitments to take more action to help countries cope with climate change impacts.</p><p> </p><p>Developing country governments are already taking action themselves. For example, Bangladesh has introduced a National Resilience Programme to ensure it has the capacity to respond to extreme weather events, and the UK is assisting them with that. Bangladesh is one of the global leaders in cutting the cost and impact of natural disasters.</p>

It is clear however that the world is not on track to avoid dangerous climate change and environmental damage. The Secretary of State wants to see what more we can do with the UK’s aid budget and how we can encourage others to take more action. The UN Climate Action Summit in September is a critical moment to increase global ambition and I am pleased that the UK playing a leading role in shaping the agenda on how to build resilience to cope with climate change already locked in.</p> more like this

This includes specific assistance to help people and communities to be more resilient to climate change.
