Abstract

This chapter investigates the extent to which the European Union (EU)1 has incorporated climate change into its development cooperation policy. It describes the EU’s development cooperation policy, its evolution and its main principles (see Section 6.2), and focuses on the process of delivering aid (see Section 6.2.5).

Subsequently, this chapter explains how the policy areas of climate change and development cooperation have become linked over time (see Section 6.3), elaborates on how current EU policy incorporates climate change into development cooperation (see Section 6.3.2), and outlines the policy tools that are employed to incorporate environmental issues in general, and climate change in particular, into development cooperation programming (see Section 6.3.3). Finally, it assesses the current status of climate incorporation in EU development cooperation (see Section 6.4), and draws conclusions (see Section 6.5).

Keywords: climate change, development cooperation, mainstreaming, EU, law, policy, aid, adaptation, mitigation, environmental integration, UNFCCC, Kyoto Protocol, Policy coherence for development, official development assistance (ODA)
