The climate science behind the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports has shaped the global discourse on climate and provided the basis for international action.
This report presents a mapping and analysis of the scope and reach of UK Official Development Assistance (ODA) and Wellcome-funded research on climate change and international development between 2015 and 2020. It sets out the distribution of research funding during this period, examines some of the strengths, weaknesses and impacts of UK ODA and Wellcome-funded research, and looks ahead at some of the gaps, opportunities and research priorities for the future. It also provides an early examination of the impacts of COVID-19 on the climate-development research landscape.
IMPACT CASE STUDIES
Six case studies have been developed to provide examples of how some of the impact types, discussed in the UKCDR report, have been delivered in practice over the last 5 years. They have been selected to represent a range of impact types, as well as a variety of project types, geographical and thematic foci, and research funders.
This briefing summarises the findings and recommendations of a review of UK Official Development Assistance (ODA) and Wellcome-funded research on climate change and international development, between 2015 and 2020.
