New Zealand's Pacific neighbours are in for a climate aid boost.

The government's committing $1.3 billion over four years to support countries most vulnerable to climate change - at least half of that money will go to the Pacific.

The announcement comes ahead of the UN's Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, which begins at the end of October.

Climate Change Minister James Shaw spoke to Susie Ferguson.
