Flemming Moller Mortensen, the development minister for Denmark, said in a statement that it is unfair the world’s poorest nations have to pay for climate change related incidents despite contributing the least to pollution.

The funds are aimed at helping relieve damage caused by climate change and working to mitigate climate-related disasters from happening, according to the Danish press release.

Denmark becomes the first U.N. member state to contribute to loss and damage funding. Scotland, which is not a U.N. member independently, announced it would provide to the fund last November.
