The data in this chart is based on information received from the 25 mulitlateral, bilateral, regional and national climate funds regularly monitored by CFU. The data, for most funds, is up to date as of end of September 2014

Updated just before COP 20 in Lima (Peru), this series of 11 short introductory briefings, written in co-operation with the Overseas Development Institute, looks at various aspects of climate change financing. It is meant to give readers unfamiliar with the global discourse about funding for climate action a better understanding of financial flows, the regions and countries they reach, and the climate interventions they target and is presented (below) in English, Spanish and French versions.

Separate briefs discuss the principles for a normative framework for climate finance, the evolving global climate finance architecture, gender aspects of climate financing, and provide updated information on the progress in operationalizing the Green Climate Fund, including the latest resource mobilization efforts for the fund. Others focus on the thematic areas of funding for mitigation, adaptation and REDD+ (reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation and forest conservation) respectively. Lastly, several briefings look specifically at the scale and impact of climate finance flows on different regions in the developing world.

Data used in the briefs draws on, the tracking project of ODI/hbf focusing on dedicated climate financing instruments from pledge to project.
