Assessing UK International Climate Finance actions against the Global Goal on Adaptation

Research reports

Written by Neil Bird

This paper addresses a pressing concern: how does international action funded by developed countries contribute to the global goal of adapting to climate change?

The report focuses on the UK’s International Climate Finance (ICF) and examines whether ICF actions are supporting the Global Goal on Adaptation of the Paris Agreement. The UK is one of the world’s leading providers of climate finance, with a commitment to an even split in support for mitigation and adaptation. Scrutiny of this commitment is therefore important as the UK prepares to host the 2021 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties meeting in Glasgow.
