Climate Finance: is it making a difference?

International efforts to tackle climate change are at a critical juncture. At the end of 2015 governments gathered at the Paris climate summit to frame a new international agreement aimed at preventing ‘dangerous climate change’. Achieving that goal requires a high level of ambition backed by practical policy commitments. Finance has a pivotal role to play in supporting developing countries to reduce emissions, decarbonise their economies, and adapt to the impacts of climate change. Governments across the world’s poorest countries see financial commitments as key to a global deal that can deliver meaningful climate action.

This report, for the first time, analyses a decade of contributions and spending to nine major international and two national funds set-up to tackle climate change.

This updated key issues guide, developed by the Climate Finance Update team, focuses on public finance and dedicated climate funds. It notes key sources of funding and trends in spending in the efforts of governments, organisations and communities in adapting to and mitigating climate change.
