This project supports NDC implementation in partner countries (Brazil, Germany/ EU, India, Indonesia, and South Africa) with research-based policy advice and capacity development. The project analyses the design of policy and financial instruments and their ability to mobilise private- and public-sector climate-friendly investments. Other areas of research include the role of international partners to support climate policy processes in emerging markets, the role of technical assistance in transforming the finance sector, and the role of the GST in strengthening national action and international cooperation.
Issues of national relevance are examined in annual, country-specific studies that focus on various NDC policy areas, which are also supplemented by a cross-sectoral study. Workshops, publications, and webinars are used to ensure that insights gained are transferred to the policymaking process.
The project is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) supported by the German government. NewClimate supports the project as implementation partner. The project began in July 2019.
The SNAPFI project website lists publications from all consortium partners.
