More than £2bn of UK foreign climate aid channelled through consultancies since 2010 More than £2bn of UK foreign aid aimed at helping poorer countries cope with the escalating climate crisis has been channelled through private consultancies since 2010, according to an analysis. The investigation by Carbon Brief found that more than 10% of UK foreign aid spent on climate-related projects had gone through consultants like KPMG, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and Adam Smith International. The findings have raised concerns among those on the frontline of the climate crisis who say climate funding works best when it is invested directly in local communities rather than through international corporations.

      This is not good for the UK. This money could have helped a lot of people if managed well and through the right channels

While consultancies play a role, prioritizing direct investments in local communities may better address the urgent needs of poorer countries facing the climate crisis. This article highlights the need for more transparent and community-focused approaches to climate aid.
