Environment and climate change

Part of 'ReCom – research and communication on foreign aid' project

Climate change poses humanity’s biggest challenge. With climate change now an urgent priority, what can we learn from past successes of development co-operation in the environmental area, its failures, and how can some of these successes be scaled-up in the area of climate change adaption?

Foreign aid has always had a role in addressing environmental issues and in helping with natural disasters. In this animation we look at how aid works in relation to climate change. The film is part of a series produced by UNU-WIDER on the project ‘ReCom–Research and Communication on Foreign Aid’. It can for instance be used when teaching students about environmental challenges.
