Foreign Aid Evaluation and International Financial Mobilization for Climate Change Adaptation

Weikmans, R. 2018. Foreign aid evaluation and international financial mobilization for climate change adaptation. Revue internationale des études du développement, 234(2): 151-175.

Abstract

Promises of North-South financial transfers play a significant role in international climate negotiations. In particular, financial assistance to help developing countries adapt to the detrimental effects of climate change is gaining ground on the international agenda. This article aims at examining the specific approach to aid evaluation associated with this financial mobilization. It also shows how some recurring debates around international adaptation finance can be understood in the light of opposed positions regarding aid evaluation.
