Climate Finance Landscape
Clear data on climate finance flows at global and national levels is critical to maintaining the momentum of the Paris Agreement. Otherwise, it is difficult to identify gaps, measure progress, craft effective policies, and optimize the deployment of public and private resources to make finance consistent with climate goals.
CPI has tracked and analyzed climate finance flows for more than a decade, building robust methodologies to ensure accuracy and credibility.
CPI’s Global Landscape of Climate Finance provides the most comprehensive overview of the sources and financial instruments driving investment and how much climate finance is flowing globally and to which sectors. Our robust Landscape methodology has also been applied at the national level, including Brazil, China, Côte d’Ivoire, Germany, India, Indonesia, Kenya, and South Africa, to analyze sources and uses at the national level as well as to supplement NDC financing strategies. It has also been used to understand funding gaps and opportunities in sectors such as land use, adaptation, energy access, cities, and renewable energy finance.
Our work, which is overseen by the Climate-aligned Finance Tracking Group, influenced the Paris Agreement, and continues to be used by the UNFCCC and the International Development Finance Club in policy making discussions.
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.
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.
In the wake of COP26, a renewed sense of urgency has gathered around climate finance and the complex and sometimes competing challenges this raises. CPI has released the in-depth version of its 2021 Global Landscape of Climate Finance report, which seeks to calibrate this discussion by providing the most comprehensive overview of global climate-related primary investment in 2019/2020.
