Scotland has launched a fund worth £10 million to tackle climate change.

Around 116 community projects have been awarded a share of the fund to develop projects which aim to reduce carbon emissions and to improve the environment.

Scottish Climate Change Minister Aileen McLeod said the projects will make a real difference in the fight to tackle climate change.

She added: “Climate change affects us all and we must all do what we can limit its impact. Scotland is on track to exceed our world-leading 2020 target for a 4% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and our high ambition approach has described as ‘exemplary’ by Christiana Figueres, the head of the UN climate body, during her recent visit to Scotland.”
