Analysis of climate finance flows and development of policies and instruments to maximise the impact of finance on the ground.
Solving the climate challenge requires redirecting investments towards climate-compatible options and supporting countries and investors to integrate climate concerns into their policies. We analyse current climate finance flows and develop concrete proposals on how climate finance can be applied most effectively from a funder’s as well as recipient’s perspective. Combining practical experience from our in-country work with our research and analysis of climate policies and their impacts, we address the challenge from different perspectives:
- Comprehensive analyses to understand barriers to investment and how to remove these most effectively to achieve climate and development objectives
- Designing finance schemes and mechanism according to local requirements which seek to stimulate private sector investment through targeted public finance interventions to advance climate action
- Developing methodologies and frameworks for the evaluation of the effectiveness and impacts of financial interventions, and feeding results back into the design of finance strategies and guidelines at international, national and organisational levels.
