Tracking Climate Finance by Sector
CPI is the leading authority on tracking and analyzing climate finance flows. We work to assess the scale of finance, identify the main actors in the market, reveal investment gaps, and highlight opportunities to mobilize finance to fulfill investment potential in key sectors with the potential for positive climate impact.
Our sectoral climate finance tracking work covers a wide range of topics, including:
- a comprehensive analysis of commitments flowing to energy access in high impact countries;
- a theoretical framework and methodology to measure and categorize climate finance flows to small-scale agriculture in developing countries;
- the first comprehensive assessment of methane abatement finance;
- and innovative methods to better measure finance for climate adaptation.
Less than 2% of total climate finance goes to small-scale farmers in developing nations. This report proposes a methodology to measure climate finance flows to small-scale agriculture in developing countries and provides a snapshot of climate finance to small-scale agriculture in 2017/18.
Energizing Finance, developed in partnership with Sustainable Energy for All, provides a comprehensive analysis of tracked finance commitments flowing to the two key areas of energy access: electrification and clean cooking.
In 2017, global EV sales reached one million for the first time. The year after, sales had almost doubled. But what kind of impact are these vehicles having, and how far are we from road transport systems that are compatible with a world of less than 2°C warming?
This brief aims to address the energy efficiency data gap by proposing a methodology for estimating climate finance in energy efficiency in newly constructed green buildings and by adding a more granular view on the alignment of projects—and investments—with low-emission scenarios.
This brief, part of the Energizing Finance series, provides an analysis of international finance commitments and disbursements to Sierra Leone – one of the countries worst affected by the 2014-2016 Ebola outbreak.
This blog dives deeper into the reasons underlying the private adaptation finance gap, synthesizing potential policy levers that could help unlock and mobilize private capital to prepare for, or respond to, the physical impacts of climate change.
