This infographic shows European countries’ contributions to the replenishment of the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
Some European countries have understood that in order to help the poorest countries scale up their climate action and cope with the climate crisis, they need to at least double their previous contributions to the GCF.
However, the finance that many other European countries are putting on the table is nowhere near what is needed. They must top their pledges up. And more countries still need to come forward. This GCF replenishment phase will last until December 2023 but countries should come forward with more ambitious contributions as soon as possible in light of developing countries’ need to scale up their climate plans in 2020.
