Tracking Climate Finance by Geography
As governments work to implement the Paris Agreement, they need to understand domestic flows of finance so they can better align them with their climate goals, identify gaps, and unlock the private investment needed for green, resilient development.
Our tracking work supports these efforts and is used to provide robust analysis of how much climate finance is flowing in and to high impact emerging economies at the regional, national and subnational level. We work directly with governments to identify the enabling conditions that are most likely to drive investment to support low carbon, climate resilient growth.
To date, more than 15 countries have used our methodology to track financial progress on NDCs, including:
Indonesia needs to significantly scale up climate finance in the next ten years to achieve its NDCs. CPI’s upcoming study, Uncovering the Landscape of Private Climate Finance in Indonesia, is aimed at developing a first-of-its-kind approach for tracking private climate finance in Indonesia.
This study identifies domestic and international public finance that limited deforestation and encouraged sustainable land use in Côte d’Ivoire in 2015. It provides a baseline against which to measure progress towards the levels of investment required to meet government goals for sustainable agriculture and reforestation. It also identifies opportunities to increase finance available for implementation of its National REDD+ Strategy. For example, greening the hundreds of billions of West African CFA francs (FCFA) spent annually on business-as-usual agriculture in the country could increase productivity without sacrificing the country’s forests.
There is a growing need to sensitize India’s financial sector about the importance and benefits of Green Finance, and ways to accelerate green capital flows in India.
Indonesia’s desire to drive economic growth and reduce climate risk is reflected in the sweeping policy reforms it has introduced in recent years to meet targets announced in 2009 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In this report, CPI identifies which public actors are investing in Indonesia, through which instruments, and what they are investing in to provide a baseline against which to measure progress and plan scale up. This mapping exercise reveals investment patterns that allow decision makers to pinpoint where the biggest barriers and opportunities are.

Kenya accounts for less than 0.1% of global GHG emissions and its per capita emission is less than half the global average; yet Kenya suffers disproportionately from climate related disasters.
