The public sector will have to leverage several hundreds of USD billions of private investments per year in order to enable low-carbon development limiting global warming to 2 degrees Celsius. The authors of this report have studied different tools for leveraging funds, ways to accounting for private funds, and finally whether the ratio of leveraged private funds to leveraging public funds is a good indicator for efficiency.
This report summarizes the proceedings of the El Salvador conference (June 2010) "Strategies for Adapting Public and Private Infrastructure to Climate Change". It outlines the multiple development benefits of climate-proofing infrastructure. While these proceedings address the specific context of El Salvador, the methodologies outlined can be applied to a wide range of situations.
ClimateTechWiki offers a platform for a wide range of stakeholders in developed and developing countries who are involved in technology transfer and the wider context of low emission and low vulnerability development. ClimateTechWiki offers detailed information on a broad set of mitigation and adaptation technologies.
The guidebook provides an overview of NCFs and outlines six key components that are critical for the effective design and establishment of an NCF. It also presents a method for consolidating the decisions around these components into a term sheet that can help to facilitate stakeholder engagement for a robust and transparent design process.
The report calls for mainstreaming climate and disaster risk reduction to become factors in conventional planning processes, project design and development decision making; developing specialised ﬁnancial instruments for the risk-oriented components of these projects that cannot be addressed via mainstreaming measures; and building local institutional capacity to prepare, structure and manage large scale redevelopment.
This guidebook (PDF) is offered as a primer to countries to enable them to better assess the level and nature of assistance they will require to catalyze climate capital based on their unique set of national, regional and local circumstances.
This Toolkit (PDF) helps practitioners understand how to differentiate between a climate change adaptation and a traditional development initiative. It sets out the fundamental components of the design process, the approach to building stakeholder consensus, and key tools and methodologies.
