The UN estimates just 21% of international climate finance goes to adaptation and resilience (about $16.8 billion a year).
Climate change is still a threat
Although there has been a slight drop in CO2 emissions due to reduced travel during the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change is still a real threat. Climate change disproportionately affects the most vulnerable, as low-income countries face staggering losses in livelihoods and GDP due to weather-related disasters.
