Follow-up to IDC and ICAI climate change Reports inquiry


Five months after the Committee published its report on UK aid for combatting climate change, and eight months after the Independent Commission for Aid Impact published its report on UK aid for low carbon development, the IDC scrutinised the Government’s progress against key recommendations in this important area of aid spending. The Committee got an update from the new Ministerial team about the Government’s strategic approach to spending aid for climate change and follow-up on recommendations about linkages between climate finance and poverty reduction, efforts to align UK aid with the goals of the Paris Agreement and the coherence of UK Export Finance investments in developing countries with UK international climate finance.
