Climate change mitigation and natural disaster recovery are priorities for this government. Investment in reducing the UK’s contribution to climate change and managing its impacts can deliver benefits across the UK. This is why we have placed clean growth at the heart of our modern Industrial Strategy. Future funding decisions are a matter for the Spending Review.
