UK PACT (Partnering for Accelerated Climate Transitions) is a £60m flagship programme under the UK’s International Climate Finance (ICF) portfolio. It is part of the UK’s £5.8bn commitment to International Climate Finance by 2021 to tackle climate change. The programme will run from 2018 to 2022 and is funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
UK PACT works with partner countries, supporting them to accelerate their clean growth transitions.
The programme supports countries eligible for Official Development Assistance (ODA) to implement and increase their ambitions for carbon emissions reductions in line with their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and the long-term goal of the 2015 Paris Agreement to limit dangerous climate change.
UK PACT is delivered through three key mechanisms:
- Country Programmes: support to innovative capacity-building projects in partner countries, which deliver activities in line with country context and demand from government stakeholders.
- Green Recovery Challenge Fund: support to innovative capacity building projects in a wider range of ODA-eligible countries to promote emissions reductions and low carbon solutions.
- Skill-shares and Secondments: provision of short-term peer-to-peer skill shares with country counterparts and long-term secondments into key institutions.
