The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is intended to help developing and vulnerable countries address the challenges and negative impacts of climate change like flooding, sea level rise, drought, and decreased crop production.
More than 30 countries have pledged $10.2 billion to get the fund up and running. In his current budget proposal, President Obama has requested $750 million for the GCF, an increase from his 2016 budget request of $500. To maintain U.S. leadership in addressing the global climate challenge, Congress must approve this request.
Tell your Senators: $750 million for the Green Climate Fund is essential to combating global climate change.
