star this property answer text <p>Action to avert, minimize and address loss and damage associated with climate change is intricately bound up with action on mitigation, adaptation, disaster risk reduction and disaster preparedness and response. We therefore do not see that attempting to define a separate category of finance for loss and damage as useful or practical. Of the £5.8bn on climate finance we have committed to spend from 2016-2021 the UK aims to spend 50% on adaptation and 50% on mitigation.</p> more like this

This is why the UK is taking a leading role in tackling climate change and protecting the world’s natural resources.</p><p> </p><p>The UK has committed to £5.8bn of climate finance from 2016/17 – 2020/21. This includes specific assistance to help people and communities to be more resilient to climate change. For example, under our Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters programme, we are helping farmers in Burkina Faso prepare for heavy rains and high temperatures, which will help improve household food security and livelihoods. Since 2011, UK climate investments have supported 47 million people to cope with the effects of climate change and provided 17 million people with improved access to clean energy.

For example, DFID is investing in strengthening nutrition services in countries like Kenya, and across the Sahel, so they are better able to scale-up to deal with increases in malnutrition that can arise due to climate-related shocks.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>DFID is supporting research organisations to make assessments of the impact of climate change on agriculture, food security and malnutrition. This includes support to the Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security Programme. One of its recent assessments found that 60% of production of beans in sub-Saharan Africa was at risk from climate change. DFID also supports the Global Panel on Agriculture and Food Systems for Nutrition which has recently made an assessment of the effects of climate change on food systems and nutrition.</p><p>DFID is using these assessments to inform our policies and programmes on agriculture. For example DFID’s Agriculture Policy Framework includes action on climate change as one of its priorities for our programmes. An example is our support to the International Fund for Agriculture Development’s Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP). Our support to ASAP is helping 6 million smallholder farmers to cope with the effects of climate change and at the same time increasing their agriculture productivity, incomes and food security.</p>
