​Several Prosperity Fund programmes contribute to environmental issues in Brazil. The Green Finance programme supports work to improve the availability of private sector finance for high quality, sustainable infrastructure investment. The Energy programme will support Brazil's low-carbon transition by improving access to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy. The Future Cities programme will help to make more efficient use of resources and reduce transport pollution. The Government has, respectively, committed £5 million, £25 million, and £20 million to these programmes.
