Latest press releases

13 November 2021
Reacting to the outcome of COP26 on the basis of the presidency text, IIED director Andrew Norton said: "With this agreement, climate justice has been partly served. The possibility of limiting global warming to 1.5°C remains alive with the request for countries to further increase ambition in 2022, and with it the chance to save millions of people from the worst impacts of climate change."
10 November 2021
Reacting to the first draft of the COP26 agreement, IIED director Andrew Norton said: “The recognition that developing countries are sinking deeper and deeper into debt to cope with the impacts of climate change is welcome as well as the need for more finance to be grants, not loans.
8 November 2021
Reacting to announcements of more funding for lower-income countries to adapt to climate change, as well as endorsements of the principles for locally-led adaptation, Clare Shakya, director of IIED's Climate Change research group said: “Every pledge that brings us closer to providing US$100bn in climate finance every year for poorer countries is welcome.

1 November 2021
Reacting to the UK Prime Minster Boris Johnson’s opening address at the COP26 climate talks in Glasgow, IIED director Andrew Norton said: “It was heartening to hear the prime minister lay bare the peril the world faces from climate change and take it seriously, including the need to keep global warming to 1.5°C."
27 October 2021
Reacting to the spending review announced by UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak, IIED director Andrew Norton said: “The chancellor has failed to reassure the international community that he is not planning to effectively make further cuts to UK overseas aid by classifying almost a third of any allocation of Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) from the IMF as part of the aid budget."
