Africa is under extreme threat from climate change despite producing only 3-4% of the planet’s emissions. Trillions of dollars are needed to fund mitigation and adaptation measures, far beyond the current capacity of governments.
How can this funding gap be filled? How can sources of private finance be mobilized? What can donors and multilateral development banks do?
Before we can begin to answer these questions we need credible, independent and accurate information about the funding that is currently available to Africa; where it is coming from and what it is being used for. This data is crucial to set the context for negotiations at COP27 and for our ability to measure global progress on climate finance.
To address this fundamental need Climate Policy Initiative, FSD Africa, and Children’s Investment Fund Foundation have partnered on a first-of-its-kind research project to map climate finance flows in Africa by region, sector, and source.
In this webinar, CPI analysts present the findings from the Landscape of Climate Finance in Africa report.
