World Bank promised to provide 200 million dollar for climate change during 2021-25

The World Bank announced a plan of $ 200 billion investment on Monday to deal with the problem of climate change during 2021-25.

The World Bank said in the statement that out of this $ 200 billion fund, there would be about $ 100 billion direct finance. Nearly one-third of funding will be from the World Bank Group's agencies and the remaining private capital, which the World Bank will raise.

The World Bank said that it reflects a significant increase in ambition to deal with climate change. The World Bank has taken this step at a time when there is a meeting of about 200 nations in the United Nations Climate Summit in Poland. This move by the World Bank has indicated to the global community that they should take some similar initiative.
