Of all bilateral ODA in 2019, 27.2% had climate objectives (USD 33 billion), a slight increase from previous years. Over 2018-19, 45% of those climate-related funds had mitigation objectives, 25% had adaptation objectives, and 30% pursued both, a stable distribution since 2015.
Which sectors does bilateral climate-related ODA target?
Support for mitigation dominates in sectors with more potential for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission abatement, such as transport and energy. Support for adaptation focuses more on those closely linked to the ecosystem, such as agriculture, forestry and fishing, and water supply and sanitation.
