US pledges $3 bln for Green Climate Fund at COP28
The United States has pledged $3 billion to the Green Climate Fund, Vice President Kamala Harris said on Saturday as she arrived in Dubai for the U.N. climate summit.
The fund, with more than $20 billion in pledges, is the largest international fund dedicated to supporting climate action in developing countries.
The latest pledge, which Reuters was first to report, would be additional to another $2 billion previously delivered by the United States.
Sources said the pledge was subject to the availability of funds. The politically divided U.S. Congress needs to authorize the funding.
Harris announced the pledge in advance extracts of her address to the COP28 summit.
