Abstract

There is an urgent need to mainstream the key challenges of climate change into sector and development planning and decision making processes to create sustainable long-term development. Empirical results in this study emphasize that more caution is needed in directing overseas development aid (ODA) towards climate change mitigation and adaptation due to the links between various macroeconomic variables related to growth and poverty reduction.

Keywords: climate change, overseas development assistance, millennium development goals, technology transfer

JEL Classification: F35, P33, Q56, O19
