While funding for climate change adaptation and mitigation is likely to grow in the years to come, ODA and aid for trade can already play a role in building capacities and resilience. New Zealand is seeking to mainstream climate-change issues throughout its aid programme. It is working to ensure that infrastructure projects - including trade-related infrastructure - are “climate-proofed”. This is particularly important as many of its Pacific partners, the key regional focus of its work, are highly vulnerable to the environmental impacts of climate change.

Similarly, over 20% donors saw it as the most important factor behind strategy changes; over 25% felt it was less important. For South-South partners, it was important in only half of those that changed their policies.

The Maldives continues to focus on attracting FDI and engaging the private sector through public-private partnerships, but more emphasis is being placed on competitiveness and diversification. Haiti retains its previous objectives, but green growth and gender equality have been added. Tonga’s objectives reflect the country’s small size, remoteness, and vulnerability to external shocks.
