Climate Finance

Public and private climate finance is a central means of implementation for ambitious adaptation and mitigation options. Through our interdisciplinary approach linking science and policy elements we assist stakeholders in developing successful strategies to shift investments towards sustainable development in line with internationally agreed temperature goals.
As part of our negotiation support we assist vulnerable countries in their efforts to implement innovative and transformative approaches for an institutional architecture that is responsive to their needs and circumstances.

Climate Finance is a key element of supporting ambitious action on climate change. We have been closely following the development of a new institutional architecture for international climate finance in the aftermath of Copenhagen. As part of our negotiation support delivered to Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs), we support negotiators in the UNFCCC and GCF negotiations with on-demand analysis and technical support on all areas of international climate finance. This enables them to formulate an integrated strategy in the implementation of the international climate finance architecture as part of the negotiations for a new agreement that takes into account the needs of vulnerable countries.

Our expertise also includes the analysis and synthesis of technical information regarding the assessment of sources for long-term finance and comparative analysis of elements and options for the operationalization of the institutional climate finance architecture.
In order to facilitate efforts to advance the operationalization of the new climate finance architecture and provide space for informal discussions amongst negotiators and experts, we organize workshops and meetings in cooperation with government agencies, and non-governmental partners.

Projects

IMPACT is a cross-cutting, multi-faceted project that aims to strengthen the connections between the scientific assessments of climate impacts, vulnerability and adaptation to help enable access to finance and help Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) implement concrete projects.  
This project provides francophone Least Developed Countries in sub-Saharan Africa with science-based support when formulating their national adaptation plans (NAPs). In addition, it will these countries’ access to international climate finance and establish national, international and regional platforms to share knowledge and experiences.  
The project supports national climate finance institutions tasked with accessing the Green Climate Fund (GCF) under the Fund’s direct access modality and provides strategic and conceptual support for developing national climate change strategies. Project Period: 2014 - 2016  
Climate Analytics provided conceptual and organisational support for the Green Climate Fund Readiness Meeting on 11–12 July 2013 in Bridgetown, Barbados, organised in a partnership between GIZ, CDB, and the GCF Board. Project Period: 2013
