UNDP / UNEP / WRI Green Climate Fund Readiness Programme

Germany BMUB establishes $20m programme to prepare developing countries to access GCF resources and build enabling environments for increased climate finance flows, including private sector

Status of Climate Finance in Indonesia (GIZ/CDKN)

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) funded the project “Strengthening Public and Private Climate Finance in Indonesia and Vietnam”. Against the backdrop of an increasingly complex and diverse international climate finance landscape the project aims at equipping developing countries with the capacities they require for getting access to as well as effectively and efficiently deploying financial resources for climate change adaptation.

Financial Instruments and Mechanisms for Climate Change Programs in Latin America and the Caribbean: A Guide for Ministries of Finance (IDB)

Developing countries could receive international climate financing through diverse resource streams (private investment, traditional development aid, dedicated national funds, carbon markets, etc.), but it is fragmented both in terms of its source as well as its destination (various line ministries, general budget support, national implementing agencies, private sector, etc.). Additionally, application processes vary both in length and requirements.

Understanding Climate Finance Readiness Needs in Tanzania (GIZ)

The need to support national processes that enhance access, allocation and spending of climate finance in developing countries is increasingly being appreciated by the international community. The Green Climate Fund’s (GCF) Governing Instrument envisages support for such climate finance readiness activities, and a number of bilateral and multilateral initiatives are being developed to provide resources to this end. The exploration of climate finance readiness needs in Tanzania is therefore timely.  

Global Landscape of Climate Finance 2013 (CPI)

The Global Landscape of Climate Finance 2013 finds that global climate finance flows have plateaued at USD 359 billion, or around USD 1 billion per day – far below even the most conservative estimates of investment needs. On one hand, there is some cause for optimism: Although private investment has declined in general terms, technology costs for large-scale renewable energy have fallen further, perhaps as economies of scale start to take hold.

Financing Pathways for Low Emissions and Climate Resilient Development (E3G)

“National Financing Pathways” are put forward here as a concept that articulates the interdependencies between public, private and international sources of finance as a means of delivering scaled investment to support implementation of low emission and climate resilient development. The interplay between national policy objectives and institutional frameworks with various sources of finance can be considered as constituting a national finance ecosystem and so influencing the shape and pace of the financing pathway.

Climate Change Open Data Platform

The Climate Change Open Data Platform serves as a one stop shop for data and content on climate change-, energy-, and environment-related topics. 

Capacity Assessment Tool for Climate Change Institutions (UNDP)

This capacity assessment scorecard will be one key resource to identify Institutional Capacities for Climate Change, which will allow a prioritized Capacity Development Plan to be prepared.

International Guidebook of Environmental Finance Tools (UNDP)

The International Guidebook of Environmental Finance Tools provides guidance on developing and implementing the most commonly used, widely applicable, and potentially high-impact environmental finance tools. It aims to define and analyse the primary tools that are already in use and that can be applied globally to advance sustainable development. The tools explored in the Guidebook have been successfully applied to protect the environment and promote pro-poor and predominantly rural development.
