UK Climate Finance is Mostly Channelled to Non-African Organisations

An African Arguments analysis highlights that less than a quarter of climate finance from the United Kingdom to Africa has gone to organisations based on the continent. According to a report by Carbon Brief, in the period between 2010 and 2023, the UK provided £6.64 billion ($8.06 billion) in climate-related funds to Africa.  The vast majority of this finance, however, was channelled through private companies, NGOs, or multilateral bodies based in the Global North.
