Standing Committee on Finance


At COP 16, Parties decided to establish a Standing Committee on Finance to assist the COP in exercising its functions in relation to the Financial Mechanism of the Convention. This involves improving coherence and coordination in the delivery of climate change financing, rationalization of the Financial Mechanism, mobilization of financial resources and measurement, reporting and verification of support provided to developing country Parties.

The Standing Committee on Finance will conduct activities such as: the organization of a forum for communication and continued exchange of information among bodies and entities dealing with climate change finance; the maintaining of linkages with the Subsidiary Body for Implementation and thematic bodies of the Convention; the provision of draft guidance for the operating entities of the Financial Mechanism; the provision of recommendations on how to improve the coherence, effectiveness and efficiency of the operating entities of the Financial Mechanism; the provision of expert input into the preparation and conduct of the periodic reviews of the Financial Mechanism; and the preparation of a biennial assessment, overview of climate finance flows.
