About us

Climate Funds Update is a joint initiative of the Heinrich Böll Stiftung (HBF) and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI).  Our team monitors dedicated climate change funds from the stage when donors pledge funding, through to the actual disbursement of financing for projects, in an effort to increase the transparency of climate finance flows.


Our data is updated every six months, and the managers and administrators of the funds we monitor play an invaluable role in helping us access and improve the quality of our information. ODI and HBF retain sole responsibility for the analysis and presentation of information on Climate Funds Update. Learn more about the protocols used to collect information on this site on our notes and methodology page.
