BEIS – INTERNATIONAL AID BUDGET & CLIMAT CHANGE POLICIES – 26 September 2019

Dr Julian Lewis: Do we have a policy of using our large international aid budget as a means of incentivising other countries to improve their climate change policies?

[The Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (Andrea Leadsom): My right hon. Friend will be aware that in our recently published green finance strategy, we committed to aligning all UK overseas development aid with the Paris agreement, so that our development finance is consistent with climate-resilient and low greenhouse gas development pathways. We urge all nations to do likewise.]
