Scotland pledging £12m for global climate change 'justice' - 7th December
Scotland is to invest an extra £12m over four years to tackle the impact of climate change on the world's poorest communities.
The funding will see the Scottish government's Climate Justice Fund double in size to support projects in countries such as Malawi and Zambia.
The first minister Nicola Sturgeon said: "The people who have done least to cause climate change are the people who are being hit hardest. The scale of the injustice is massive.
"That's why Scotland backs the case for an ambitious agreement at the Paris summit - one which is capable of limiting temperature increases to below two degrees Celsius.
"And we are determined to lead by example - we have some of the most ambitious statutory targets anywhere in the world.”
The Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund (SCIAF) welcomed the cash boost which it said "sets a positive example to other wealthy nations meeting in Paris".
