Climate Finance Landscapes

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, and optimize the deployment of public and private resources to make finance consistent with climate goals.

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 beginning work with the governments of India, Indonesia, Brazil, Kenya, and South Africa to supplement their NDC financing strategies. It has also been used in critical sectors that need more finance, including land use, adaptation, energy access, 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.
