The impact of UK overseas aid on environmental protection and climate change adaptation and mitigation

Working papers

Written by Neil Bird, Paola Pereznieto, Caroline Harper

The submission compiles contributions from experts from the Overseas Development Institute in response to Environmental Audit Committee’s inquiry into the impact of UK overseas aid. The contributions address three principle areas relating to: UK aid’s role in avoiding environmental degradation and climate change; the management of the UK’s contributions to the International Climate Finance Fund; and recommendations for addressing aspects of gender for climate change action. In doing so, the submission responds directly to the inquiry’s call for views in relation to particular aid projects/programmes specifically aimed to tackle environmental/climate change issues that have either succeeded or failed to meet objectives. Please find the above mentioned contributions below.
