Germany is to pledge the highest single contribution to a EU fund aimed at helping poor nations cope with climate change, the German Press Agency has learned.

EU governments have so far vowed to provide a total of 3 billion euros ($4.4 billion) over the next three years to a global fund provided by rich nations.

The biggest single contribution thus far - 883 million euros - has come from Britain.

While Berlin has been reluctant to make its own contribution known, EU diplomats said that Germany had made "an important pledge" during an EU summit in Brussels.
