ReCom results meeting - Aid and our changing environment

Development aid funds have in recent years shifted focus significantly towards climate change; but massive challenges are yet to be overcome in how we allocate and design aid initiatives in an effective manner to effectively address the continuing challenges from climate change.

This ReCom - Research and Communication on Foreign Aid results meeting will aim at reporting on the findings related to the question around aid, environment and climate change.

ReCom is a 3-year, internationally oriented research programme implemented by UNU-WIDER, with financial support from Sida and Danida, that aims to provide cutting-edge evidence about ‘what works’, ‘what could work’, ‘what is scalable’, and ‘what is transferable’ in the area of development cooperation, and to communicate this to the wider public. ReCom focuses on five themes: growth and employment; governance and fragility; gender equality; environment and climate change; and the social sectors. Synergies exist across these areas, and poverty reduction cuts across all five themes.
