The UK Government's four-yearly spending review set a budget of £2.9 billion for climate finance for the period 2011-12 to 2014-15, known as the International Climate Fund. UK international climate finance is Official Development Assistance (ODA) and is being met from within the rising aid budget. The share of UK ODA devoted to climate finance accounts for less than 10% in every year of this spending period.
