 A group of climate science experts from the Liu Institute have recommended measures to manage billions of dollars earmarked to help poor countries fight climate change, and avoid problems common among aid programs.

In Cancun last year world leaders pledged $100 billion annually, starting in 2020, to help developing countries adapt to climate change and mitigate the damage. In a paper published in the journal Science, Simon Donner and his colleagues Milind Kandlikar and Hisham Zerriffi, all of UBC, make three main recommendations for managing the funds.

“The international aid system is fraught with problems, and by adding another $100 million a year to it, basically doubling it, we could end up worsening a lot of problems,” said Donner.
