Bilateral Finance Institutions and Climate Change: A Mapping of 2009 Climate Financial Flows to Developing Countries
As of 2009, the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) Climate Change Working Group for Bilateral Finance Institutions annually and collectively reports climate change financial flows to developing countries.
The report shows that, in 2009, an estimated billion USD in global public climate finance was committed to support developing countries; nearly billion USD of it flowed through the BFI members of the UNEP Working Group. This represents a roughly 25-per-cent increase over BFI climate finance in 2008.
Along with providing a detailed breakdown of BFI financing by region, sectoral distribution, and adaptation vs. mitigation financing, the report makes recommendations on how to improve reporting in the future, further increasing transparency.
