Climate Finance Tracking
Data on climate finance flows at global, national, and sector levels are critical to scaling climate action where it is most needed.
Starting in 2010 with the first assessment of global climate finance flows ever undertaken, CPI has tracked and analyzed climate finance flows for more than a decade, building robust methodologies to ensure accuracy and credibility. Leveraging several data sources and partnerships, including our own primary research, we support decision makers from the public and private sectors to define and track how climate finance is flowing from sources and actors, through a range of financial instruments, to recipients and end uses.
CPI is the leading source of climate finance tracking that covers public and private sources
CPI’s Global Landscape of Climate Finance provides the most comprehensive overview of the sources driving investment and how much climate finance is flowing to which geographies and sectors. The Landscape assesses domestic and international investment from both the public and private sectors and provides policymakers and civil society a consistent baseline against which to measure progress towards levels of investment consistent with climate goals.
Our robust Landscape methodology has been applied at the regional, national, and subnational levels to analyze sources and uses of climate finance that support policy decisions, regulatory approaches, advocacy design, as well as to supplement NDC financing strategies.
We also analyze funding gaps and opportunities in key sectors such as land use, adaptation, energy access, cities, and renewable energy finance.
CPI’s tracking reports were the first to provide a comprehensive picture of all climate finance data reported to or by other organizations, based on over 20 data sources including the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
The data produced by CPI’s tracking work provides key data evidence in the context of the UNFCCC negotiations and technical discussions, for the IPCC Assessment Reports, and is used in national development plans and strategies drawn up by governments and financial institutions.
The engagement of key stakeholders in compiling these reports, and particularly providers of international public finance, has informed efforts by multilateral development banks, bilateral financial institutions, and national development banks to close some of the major gaps we report in our studies.
CPI oversees a network of experts who work to achieve greater impact and scale in climate finance by improving and aligning tracking efforts. The Group provides collaboration among major players in climate finance tracking, looking at specific market segments and themes including banking, capital markets, data, and national tracking. The Group also provides strategic direction for CPI’s research and climate finance tracking work.
Many tracking gaps and challenges remain. By continuing to provide more comprehensive and comparable data, CPI’s work will continue to help decision-makers optimize the use of their resources.

Public and private climate finance almost doubled between 2011 and 2020. However, reaching climate objectives will require climate investment to increase at least seven times by the end of this decade.

The only global snapshot of projects funded by donor governments and philanthropic organizations to tackle air pollution. The report identifies gaps in funding and opportunities for strategic investment and collaboration that can deliver clean air for all.
Meeting Africa’s climate finance needs will require significantly higher levels of investment, especially from the private sector. This publication provides a framework for how financial and non-financial solutions can be efficiently deployed to overcome barriers to finance and capitalize climate solutions in Africa.
The recently launched Indonesia Green Taxonomy 1.0 has color-coded economic activities based on their contribution to climate change mitigation: green, yellow, and red. For this taxonomy to effectively drive Indonesia economy towards a low-carbon future, our analysis recommends several key measures to ensure its interoperability with other relevant global taxonomies as well as clearer thresholds and transition pathway for the yellow category.
