UKCDR has mapped and analysed the scope and reach of UK ODA and Wellcome-funded research on climate change and international development between 2015 and 2020.

Countries around the world are being required to step up their climate ambitions at COP26, with the impacts of climate change already becoming apparent in low and middle-income countries. It is becoming increasingly important to understand the complex interactions between climate change and international development.

The UK Collaborative on Development Research (UKCDR) has analysed the scope of UK Official Development Assistance (ODA) and Wellcome-funded research on climate change and international development between 2015 and 2020.

The report sets out the distribution or research funding, examines some of the strengths, weaknesses and impacts. It looks ahead at some of the gaps, opportunities and research priorities of the future.
