UK Climate Funds For Poor Nations Pocketed By Green Campaigners

Andrew Montford, Bishop Hill

On a whim, I downloaded the monthly expenditure details from the Department of International Development for August 2015, the most recent figures available.

Of interest are payments to:

  • ClientEarth £246,171 Aid programme
  • Climate Policy Initiative £32,500 Project delivery
  • WWF £371,860 Aid programme, Asia, Caribbean and Overseas Territories
  • World Resources Institute £867,847 Aid programme grants, Policy division
  • Solar Aid £239,875
  • Environmental Investigation Agency £69,416 Aid programme grants, policy division

I don’t know about you but you could get the impression that a great deal of what DFiD reports as overseas aid spending is actually bungs to environmentalists.
