Evaluation of Danish funding for climate change mitigation in developing countries

Research reports

Written by Neil Bird

Focusing on Danish funding for climate change mitigation in developing countries in the period from 2013 to 2019, the evaluation examines the strategic effectiveness of efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The findings rest on evidence from studies of bilateral projects and programmes in four countries, namely Ethiopia, Indonesia, South Africa and Vietnam, as well as on assessments of mitigation initiatives undertaken through selected multilateral partners, including the Green Climate Fund and development banks. The evaluation concludes that the successful energy sector initiatives can be complemented with additional funds for reducing emissions through nature-based solutions.
