Climate change budget coding in Odisha

This study aims to inform planners in the State Government of the current climate change relevance and sensitivity of public expenditure in sectors outlined in Odisha’s SAPCC, through a detailed budget coding exercise. The purpose of this analysis is to assist the Government in first identifying which sectors and schemes to focus on to improve climate resilience and mitigation outcomes, and secondly to support government in deciding whether programmes need re-designing or additional funding to accommodate changes needed to deliver climate benefits and / or safeguard projects from the impacts of climate change. This would therefore support the State Government in securing broader development benefits of large scale investments being made, and would help avoid potential future losses that climate change would exacerbate, thereby helping to achieve Odisha’s climate response agenda.
