There is increasing concern over climate change impacts of the international development sector, because climate change is disproportionately affecting those groups primarily targeted by international development organisations; poor people in poor countries. Yet in their activities, these organisations generate greenhouse gases causing climate change, commonly with the most significant contributions due to travel by air. This is problematic given that the international nature of the sector often demands high levels of overseas travel.
