19 December 2016
DFID is supporting climate resilience in Ethiopia in line with the Government’s manifesto commitment to work to prevent climate change and assist the poorest in adapting to it.
We are providing technical assistance to the Ethiopian Government’s Climate Resilient Green Economy Facility, working to build the resilience of Ethiopia’s growth and help the most vulnerable Ethiopians. This includes supporting Ethiopia to access the Green Climate Fund to which the UK has pledged up to £720 million.
