Motion text

That this House congratulates all those taking part in the Young Christian Climate Network (YCCN) Relay to COP26 that is taking place 11th June to 31st October 2021; praises the efforts of the organisers and volunteers who have worked tirelessly to facilitate the events; commends all those taking part to raise awareness of the detrimental impacts of climate change on people’s livelihoods and homes; notes with concern that climate-vulnerable countries cannot access finance for adaption and climate-induced damages without incurring further debt; regrets that the Government has reduced its foreign aid budget to 0.5 per cent of national income; and supports the calls of the YCCN Relay for the Government to reinstate foreign aid budget to pre-covid levels and further calls on the Government to show leadership at COP26 in finding ways to finance the climate-induced loss and damage faced by vulnerable countries whilst avoiding further pushing these countries into debt.
