This INOGOV policy brief analyses bilateral aid for adaptation to climate change from three major donor countries – Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom – between 2010 and 2014. The brief highlights that while donors seem to prioritise vulnerable countries, specific quantitative targets could ensure a more balanced allocation of climate finance to adaptation. Recommendations propose the need for clearer and more detailed reporting, to help track finance pledges and minimise over-reporting.
The INOGOV Policy Brief series provides an outlet for the publication of policy-relevant, concise and topical papers. Often linked to current INOGOV research endeavours; including workshops, visiting fellowships and peer-review articles, topics address and reflect on current research and/or publications, ideally focusing on concrete public policy challenges or opportunities.
