Netherlands to contribute US$1.5 billion in climate financing in 2022

In a letter to parliament, the Dutch Secretary of State for Economic Affairs and Climate, Dilan Yeşilgöz-Zegerius, conveyed Dutch expectations for the COP26 climate talks, which will begin on October 31, 2021.

The Dutch government considers mitigation, adaptation, and climate financing initiatives essential during the talks, and hopes that countries worldwide are prepared to sharpen ambition for climate action in light of the recent IPCC Energy Transition report. 

The Netherlands is expected to contribute 1.3 billion (US$1.5 billion) to climate financing in 2022 in both public and private funds.
