Climate Change Budget Tagging : A Review of International Experience

he purpose of this report is to provide development practitioners and government officials with an understanding of the context and key design features of climate budget tagging initiatives. It is based on a review of 18 climate budgeting tagging methodologies as well as key informant interviews with practitioners during 2020. The review is structured into five sections. The first draws lessons from three precursors of climate expenditure tagging: poverty tagging, gender-budget tagging, and budgeting for international development goals. The second provides an overview of climate finance reporting methodologies and climate expenditure reviews supported by international organizations. The third reviews technical and institutional aspects of the climate budget tagging methodologies and practices of a number of national governments. The fourth explores links between climate budget tagging and the green bond frameworks used to mobilize climate finance. The final section discusses the benefits of and challenges in implementing a climate change tagging system and also presents lessons learned from experience in budget tagging in general and its application to climate change in particular. The report does not assess the effectiveness of climate budget tagging, as this would require a more thorough and long-term evaluation.

Bridging the gap: How to get climate services to farmers

The leaflet presents the methodologies used by the project “Strengthening Agro-climatic Monitoring and Information Systems (SAMIS) to improve adaptation to climate change and food security in Lao PDR” to get climate services to farmers. In collaboration with the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology (DMH) and the Department of Agriculture and Land Management (DALaM) the project tested a number of pathways to give farmers access to the Lao Climate Service for Agriculture (LaCSA): village’ public announcement systems, radio, school posters, app, TV, and Farmer Field Schools (FFS).

Making climate-sensitive investments in agriculture

Climate change is a major challenge for agriculture, a vital source of food, income and employment for most of the world’s poor. Agricultural investments, as a result, need to become more climate sensitive. This is as true for general agricultural investments focused on development outcomes as for projects specifically addressing climate change adaptation and mitigation. This comprehensive knowledge product provides investment practitioners with practical reference material on integrating climate risk considerations at all stages of the investment project cycle, from design to implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Produced by multidisciplinary teams across FAO, the knowledge product is organized as a compendium of modules and thematic sections. It builds on a 2012 FAO guidance document and draws on the most recent information and data sources, including the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports. It also showcases FAO-developed tools, tested approaches and selected experiences, and discusses climate financing opportunities for agriculture.

Public expenditure analysis for climate change adaptation and mitigation in the agricultural sector – A case study of Uganda

This paper presents a methodology for public expenditure review and analysis for climate change adaptation and mitigation in the agricultural sector. It outlines the basic methodological concepts, including the classification of public expenditures in the context of their links to climate change adaptation and mitigation. It also illustrates how such analysis can usefully contribute to policy decision making to better achieve the climate change adaptation and mitigation goals using the case study of Uganda. The proposed classification allows for analysing the level and the composition of public expenditures that influence adaptation capacity of the sector to climate change, and actions that increase or decrease greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in agriculture. This, in turn, allows for assessing whether the sector is stimulated in a way that allows achieving a country’s climate change adaptation and mitigation objectives and form a basis for further evaluation of the effectiveness of individual measures in reaching these objectives.

Building forward for an African green recovery

Despite its satisfactory response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Africa has lost over 30 million jobs, poverties are once again on the rise, and debt pressures are mounting. A swift and bold response is needed to address the devastating impact of the climate, health and economic crises. African finance ministers have called for an injection of external assistance of $100 billion each year for the next three years to close the financing gap of more than $345 billion identified by the IMF. Finally, for climate, health, and the economy, one thing is clear: the entire international community must cooperate to reset and rebuild a stronger multilateral framework to respond to global crises and provide equitable, just and transparent processes and systems for the management and implementation of rapid, monitorable solutions. Without such an approach, African development aspirations, as set out in national development plans, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Agenda 2063 of the African Union, will not be attained.

On sustainable development goal 7 : the «SDG7 initiative for Africa» Accelerating clean energy investments for access and climate ambition in Africa

Climate change is causing unprecedented variations in the frequency and magnitude of extreme weather events: floods, droughts and heatwaves. How African countries prepare for and manage these extreme events will be fundamental to the performance of their economies and realization of their development aspirations as embodied in various national development plans, the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the African Union’s Agenda 2063. Another key factor that will determine the attainment of Africa’s development objectives is how the continent responds to its increasing need for access to adequate, secure and reliable energy services to industrialize, trade, provide better health and education services, reduce poverty and increase inclusion, boost economic growth and cater for population growth, a growing middle class, increasing urbanization and climate change.

Learn for Our Planet

The study, Learn for Our Planet, analyzed educational plans and curricula frameworks in close to 50 countries across all regions. More than half make no reference to climate change while only 19% speak about biodiversity. The study notes a lack of attention to socio-emotional skills and action-oriented competences that are central to environmental and climate action. In an on-line survey of some 1,600 teachers and education leaders conducted for the study, one third of respondents indicated that environment-related issues were not part of teacher training.

Report of the high-level political forum on sustainable development convened under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council at its 2020 session

In her summary of the high-level political forum on sustainable development (SDG) convened under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council at its 2020 session, the President of the Economic and Social Council reported that, according to the review by the forum of progress in implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, progress has been uneven and acceleration is needed in many areas. Even before the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic revealed and deepened inequalities among and within countries, global progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals had stalled and, in some cases, reversed.
