In this webinar, we present findings from the Global Landscape of Climate Finance 2017 report, the most comprehensive overview of global climate finance flows available, which tracks how, where, and from whom finance is flowing toward low-carbon and climate-resilient actions globally, in order to identify trends, gaps, and opportunities to scale up investment. Some key findings discussed in the presentation include:
- More money than ever before, USD 410 billion annual average, was invested in low-carbon and climate-resilient actions during 2015 and 2016.
- In 2015, investment increased to $437 billion, before declining 12% to $383 billion in 2016.
- Private climate finance averaged $270 billion a year, 23% higher than the annual average during 2013/2014.
- 79% of total climate finance, annual average of $324 billion, was raised and spent in the same country.
