Climate Finance Fundamentals

Publication series

This series of short, introductory briefings are designed for readers new to the debate on global climate change financing.  In light of the fast pace of developments in climate finance, the briefs provide a better understanding of the quantity and quality of financial flows going to developing countries.

These briefs outline the principles of public climate finance; the emerging global climate finance architecture; and address the instruments, needs and actual funding amounts in the action areas of adaptation, mitigation and forest protection (reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, REDD+).  Several look specifically at the climate funding situation for specific regions of the world.
