Climate Funds Update is an independent website that provides information on the growing number of international climate finance initiatives designed to help developing countries address the challenges of climate change.
Multilateral climate funds play an important role in supporting countries to adopt low-carbon development trajectories as well as adapt to the unavoidable impacts of climate change. They also hold critical political significance, reflecting an acknowledgement by developed countries for the majority of historical greenhouse gas emissions.
The site provides current information on:
- The major climate change funds in operation;
- The scale of funding pledged and delivered by donors to these sources; and
- The distribution of financial support provided by funds to different themes, regions and projects
