A revised World Bank policy on climate change commits to making financing decisions in line with efforts to limit global warming but stops short of promising to halt the funding of fossil fuels, according to a draft bank presentation seen by the Reuters news agency.

The World Bank, the biggest provider of climate finance to developing countries, is finalising a new five-year climate action plan amid growing political momentum in the United Kingdom, the United States and other countries for ending public financing of high-emission fossil fuel projects.
