United Kingdom is delivering on our commitment of £11.6 billion - UK PM Rishi Sunak

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's statement at the COP27 summit in Egypt.

In Glasgow, we began an approach globally…

….using aid funding to unlock billions of pounds of private finance for the development of new green infrastructure.

So instead of developing countries being unfairly burdened with the carbon debt of richer nations and somehow expected to forgo that same path to growth,

….we are helping those countries deliver their own fast track to clean growth.

And the UK is making further commitments to support this today …

….including by investing £65 million in a range of green investment projects in Kenya and in Egypt.

I’d like to pay tribute to President Sisi for his leadership in bringing us all together…

….and to thank the UK’s President of COP26, Alok Sharma…

…for his inspiring work to deliver on the Paris Agreement and Glasgow Climate Pact.

By honouring the promises we made in Glasgow….

….and by directing public and private finance towards the protection of our planet….

….we can turn our struggle against climate change into a global mission for new jobs and clean growth…

…and we can bequeath our children a greener planet and a more prosperous future.

That’s a legacy we could be proud of.

So as we come together once again in common cause today,

there really is room for hope.

Together, let us fulfil it.
