Introduction/objective

  • Introduction At the 16th Conference of the Parties (COP 16) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), developed country parties committed to mobilise $100 billion annually by 2020 for climate change responses in developing countries.
  • However, measuring the progress towards that aim is  key to achieving global climate financing targets , at present there are gaps in the tracking of climate finance inflows and outflows, and data is currently patchy, particularly for private climate finance. 
  • Purpose of this Research is to conduct a case study exploring what data  sets on private and public climate finance inflows is currently available, which information sources this data is collected from, and how data collection (and “marking” for climate) could be improved.
