Investment and financial flows relevant to the development of an effective and appropriate international response to Climate Change
 

Introduction:

The UNFCCC secretariat has launched a project in 2007 to review and analyze investment and financial flows relevant to the development of an effective and appropriate international response to climate change, with particular focus on developing countries' needs, including their medium-to long-term requirements for investment and finance.

This work was mandated by COP 12 and is to result in inputs to the fourth workshop under the Dialogue (27-31 August 2007), and to COP 13 (December 2007), for its deliberations on the fourth review of the financial mechanism.  The inputs for this discussion are in the form of a large technical pdf-icon background paper (1990 kB)  assessing global investment and financial flows for mitigation and adaptation sectors as well as three summary papers.

(PDF) Report to the Dialogue: (748 kB)  The report provides a summary of findings on existing and potential investment and financial flows relevant to the development of an effective and appropriate international response to climate change, covered in detail in background paper.  

A number of international financial institutions (IFIs), United Nations agencies, intergovernmental organizations and non-governmental organizations, other relevant agencies, and representatives of the private sector and civil society have been invited to participate in a consultative process for sharing their experience and views on existing and planned investment and financial mechanisms.

 

The AWG-LCA 2 has requested the UNFCCC secretariat o prepare an update of the technical paper on investment and financial flows to address climate change, taking into account paragraph 1 of the Bali Action Plan.  The objective is to present analysis that would move forward the discussion on financing from broad investment and financial needs to options, tols and mechanisms for enhancing funding for mitigation, adaptation and technology cooperation for an effective response to climate change.
