La politique allemande de l’aide climatique

Abstract : Climate finance – financial support from developed to developing countries for climate change mitigation and adaptation – is a key pillar of international climate negotiations and agreements, as well as central to climate justice. Yet it remains unclear and contested as to what extent donors comply with their climate finance promises, or to what extent climate finance contributes to climate justice in practice. We here focus on Germany, a major climate donor, and examine its contribution to climate finance through a climate justice lens. Using data from the OECD, we analyse German climate aid between 2009 and 2019, with a focus on three elements of climate justice: how much weight is given to adaptation compared to mitigation? What role does vulnerability play? And to what extent is climate finance additional to other forms of aid? Our results show that while Germany seems to some extent to take climate justice into account, there remains room for improvement, in particular with regard to the support for Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS), as well as in the use of grants as opposed to subsidies.
