At COP28, the UK reaffirmed its commitment of £80 million to the Global Financing Facility for Women, Children and Adolescents (GFF) from 2025 to 2030. For the first time, the UK identified support for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights as International Climate Finance.

£20 million of this new phase of support to the GFF will help countries identify and address the impacts of climate change to reproductive, maternal and child health. We are working with the GFF on developing their new climate and health strategy and will report annually against the UK's International Climate Finance Framework.
