Forthcoming review: UK aid to agriculture in a time of climate change
The Independent Commission for Aid Impact is today publishing the approach for its forthcoming review of UK aid to agriculture in a time of climate change.
Since 2020 there has been dramatic progress towards reducing hunger globally. But progress has been set back in recent years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, inflation and the global economic slowdown.
Growth in agricultural productivity has been a key factor for enabling progress towards ending hunger in recent decades. However, climate change is affecting food security, as increased temperatures, reduced rainfall and more frequent extreme weather events reduce crop yields.
This review will assess all UK aid support to agriculture, excluding forestry and fisheries, between 2016 and 2021.
