International Climate Finance: UK aid for halting deforestation and preventing irreversible biodiversity loss

Client:
Independent Commission for Aid Impact
Year:
2021

ICAI scored the UK aid’s approach to halting deforestation and preventing irreversible biodiversity loss as green-amber, meaning there is satisfactory achievement in most areas, but partial achievement in others. It makes five recommendations for the government.

The report finds the UK has a range of relevant and credible programmes tackling drivers of deforestation and biodiversity loss but lacks evidence of a combined impact at scale that might result from a clearer strategic focus.
