If this is a success, could we see more funding allocated to a London GND in the future?

The £50m fund is intended to kick start action to address the most urgent challenges, demonstrate how progress can be made and identify opportunities for action at scale.

It also complements existing programmes and sources of funding that address my Green New Deal objectives including my skills budget, £34 million energy for Londoners programme, my £500 million Mayor’s Energy Efficiency Fund and the £800 million I have allocated to air quality.

In addition to accelerating financial flows to achieve net zero ambitions government must devolve funding and powers to address the urgent and true scale of the climate and ecological emergency.
