The OECD will demonstrate how this database can be used to track climate-related development finance flows:
Presentation of the database and of the methodology supporting it
Demonstration of the use of the online database, drawing on the perspectives of specific recipient and provider countries
The OECD-DAC aims to provide a complete picture of climate-related development finance flows. The DAC statistical system allows for climate-related development finance to be considered from two perspectives.
The recipient perspective captures development finance to developing countries from both bilateral and multilateral providers. Under this perspective, data include bilateral activities targeting climate change objectives identified using the Rio markers and climate-related multilateral activities collected from multilateral providers active in the climate field identified using the Rio markers or climate components methodologies (i.e. identifying climate components within projects).
- The provider perspective is a measure of bilateral providers’ effort comprising their bilateral contributions and their contributions to international organizations. Under the provider perspective, data include bilateral activities targeting climate change objectives identified using the Rio markers and the climate share of core contributions (inflows) to international organizations estimated by calculating “imputed multilateral contributions”.
