27.02.2019 - Brown Bag Lunch with Carola Klöck (CERI): Allocation of Aid for Adaptation to Climate Change across Developing Countries
Increasing amounts of development aid target climate change adaptation projects. While donors have agreed to prioritize countries 'particularly vulnerable' to the adverse effects of climate change in the international climate negotiations, it is unclear to what extent vulnerability does indeed explain how donors distribute their adaptation aid. This presentation uses OECD aid data to examine how donors allocate bilateral adaptation aid, and to what extent vulnerable countries are prioritized.
Time: Wednesday 27 February 2019 12:30 – 14:00
Registration: by Tuesday 26 February 2019, info@DEval.org
Due to limited capacity, registration will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Speaker: Carola Klöck (born Betzold) is an assistant professor at the Centre of International Studies (CERI) at Sciences Po Paris. Before joining CERI, Carola has held post-doctoral positions at the Universities of Gothenburg, Antwerp and Göttingen, and has been a visiting scholar at the Australian National University (2016) and the University of the South Pacific (2018). Her work examines the politics and finance of climate change adaptation, with a particular interest for small island states.
