Fund disbursement

This graphic displays the information reported by climate funds on the money they have paid out (disbursed) to project implementers as a proportion of the total money approved in support of projects. One can use the dropdown list on the right-hand side to display figures for individual funds. This chart represents our understanding of fund disbursement as of May 2017.


The clarity of fund reporting on this important indicator of progress varies quite substantially. Refer to the individual fund descriptions accessible through our funds page for details on individual fund reporting.


Disbursals that appear as zero or low as compared to approvals could result from slow contributor disbursal or slow recipient uptake, but also reflects in some cases a paucity of information on the status of finance after approval. This is particularly true for some of the bilateral initiatives tracked by CFU.
