Undertaking an assessment of the causes of the flooding in Pakistan and elsewhere on the Indian sub-continent would be at the discretion of the respective national governments. However, the UK Government works closely with the Met Office to monitor hazards around the world, and shares key climate information with our partners. The UK has committed to double the amount of climate finance to support adaptation to the impacts of climate change. Between 2011 and 2021 UK International Climate Finance supported 88 million people to cope with the impacts of climate change, installed 2,400MW of clean energy, providing 41 million people with improved access, and helped mobilise £8 billion of public and private finance for climate change purposes in developing countries.
