Last week, the US Senate passed a bill allocating $60 billion in federal money to support relief for Hurricane Sandy victims and the post-storm recovery efforts. This figure is notable in size and scale - $60 billion to help those impacted in the US, a developed country, cope with the impacts of a single climate change related natural disaster. It also presents an interesting dimension to the climate finance debate that we at UNICEF UK are actively engaged in.
