Climate Policy & Finance

New on Climate Policy & Finance

Intro

We support a globally coordinated, just and equitable response to the challenge of catastrophic climate change, which affects the poorest countries and people the worst. Adequate, predictable, and additional climate finance and fresh thinking is needed for innovative ways to generate new funding for effective, efficient, and (gender-)equitable climate action, particularly for Southern countries. Our Climate Finance Program analyses  and monitors the emerging global finance architecture, especially public climate funds such as the new Green Climate Fund (GCF), and works to ensure gender-responsive climate financing.

Analysis

The Green Climate Fund is important for implementing the Paris Agreement and for setting important standards for global climate finance. The financial viability of the fund, however, is by no means guaranteed.
