Our team supports developing countries to access climate finance and deliver on their climate mitigation and adaptation objectives. We engage with governments to design transformational project concept notes and proposals for multilateral institutions such as the Green Climate Fund. We also provide thought leadership on climate finance, including on the quality, accessibility, balance and size of funds.
Since 2013 we have been working in vulnerable countries to enhance the capacity of those organisations with the designated authority to coordinate with the Green Climate Fund and access climate finance.
The Network of Central Banks and Supervisors for Greening the Financial System (NGFS) is a voluntary group of banks and supervisors that aim to share best practices on climate risk management in the financial sector and to mobilise mainstream finance to promote the transition to a sustainable economy. Climate Analytics contributes to this work by providing estimates of risk from climate change impacts using future climate projections and makes them publicly available through the Climate Impact Explorer online tool.
Supporting the implementation of NDCs in the Caribbean: transforming transport and energy sectors towards a low-carbon and climate-resilient future (NDC-TEC) is a programme funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety’s (BMU) climate initiative, to support countries in the Caribbean to enhance the ambition of their climate targets, implement transformative actions within the energy and transport sectors, and to facilitate strategic access to climate financing. So far, tailored support has been offered to Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, and Saint Lucia.
Through this project, Technical Advisory Services on the Piloting of Activities for the Preparation of Country Programmes and Related Processes, funded by the Green Climate Fund, we provide technical advisory services to partner countries to enhance the scientific quality of their country programmes for the Green Climate Fund in order to improve access to funding. The services include scientific analysis, development of tools and guidelines as well as institutional capacity building.
This project aims to establish a scientifically robust and transparent link between the latest climate and economic data and the Climate Bonds Initiative’s projects.
The Climate Risk Adaptation and Insurance in the Caribbean (CRAIC) project, led by Munich Climate Insurance Initiative, assists Caribbean countries in their efforts to increase social resilience and adapt to climate change by incorporating climate risk insurance within a broader framework of disaster risk reduction strategies.
The Assessment of climate change Mitigation Pathways and Evaluation of the Robustness of mitigation cost Estimates (AMPERE) project makes multi-model comparisons to better understand climate and cost uncertainties.
Tous les pays qui ont ratifié l’Accord de Paris sont obligés à produire des nouveaux plans climatiques, dits « Contributions détérminées au niveau national » (CDN), en 2020. Dans le contexte global de cette révision des CDN, Climate Analytics a conduit des études explorant le lien entre la gouvernance forestière dans les pays du Bassin du Congo et les CDN.
We assisted the Governments of a number of countries in their domestic preparation for the formulation of their intended nationally determined contributions (INDCs), in the context of the 2015 climate agreement.
From 2012 to 2014 we authored a series of reports for the World Bank looking at the impacts of climate change in a 4°C world with an emphasis on the impacts for the most vulnerable.
Why 2024 needs to deliver on climate finance for South Asia and the world
To get climate action on track, 2024 needs to be the year we get moving on finance. We take a look at the current climate finance needs of South Asia and what to expect in the year ahead.
COP28: social and economic metrics could serve as stepping stone for Global Goal on Adaptation
As work on shaping the Global Goal on Adaptation culminates this week at COP28, we explore if social and economic metrics could be used as proxies for a country’s ability to adapt.
Safeguards and exit points for the World Bank as host of the Loss and Damage Fund
An agreement was reached to establish the World Bank as the interim host of the Loss and Damage Fund. Developing countries signed up to this on certain conditions. We unpack the safeguards put in place and look at the three points at which the Fund could exit the World Bank.

Key takeaways from the Transitional Committee’s second meeting on operationalising the new loss and damage fund and funding arrangements.
Can higher ambition in developed countries create ‘carbon space’ for others?
What does a 'fair share' of global emissions look like for Africa and South Asia? Both regions have low historical emissions and a strong claim to the remaining carbon space.

Fossil fuel divestment movement gains traction in the run up to the Paris Climate Summit
Fossil fuel divestment started as a grass-roots movement and, as it gains momentum, more and more actors — university campuses, cities, pension funds, banks, to name but a few — commit to move away from investing in coal, oil and gas. Divestment campaigns have been increasing the pressure on governments and institutions in the run up to the upcoming climate summit in Paris but will also play an important role once the expected global agreement to halt climate change is in place.
