Biennial Assessment and Overview of Climate Finance Flows - 2016


2016 BA summary and recommendations


2016 BA technical report

The preparation of the second biennial assessment and overview of climate finance flows involved meta-data and information gathering from multiple sources, which in turn informed the work of the Standing Committee on Finance.

At the technical level, the work combined literature review with virtual and in-person technical meetings involving international financial institutions and other organizations involved in climate finance tracking and reporting.

External contributors providing inputs in the preparation process included international financial institutions and other organizations that produce and aggregate data on climate finance flows such as multilateral development banks, development finance institutions, international organizations, research institutions and think tanks, private sector financial institutions, academia, and civil society organizations.

The literature review for the second biennial assessment and overview of climate finance flows was organized in four research tracks. Each track conducted research and gathering of data sets from primary and secondary data providers.

  • Research track I: This track reviewed ongoing efforts aimed at improving tracking and reporting of climate finance flows, including improvement in the use of operational definitions of climate finance.

  • Research track II: This track collected data sets and other relevant quantitative and qualitative information on climate finance flows for the period 2013-2014.

  • Research track III: This track carried out research to inform the assessment of climate finance flows.

  • Research track IV: This track focused on cross-cutting issues and undertook research to address them in a coherent and comprehensive manner in the biennial assessment and overview of climate finance flows.
