The transition to a low-carbon economy implies significant investments in buildings, transport systems, vehicles, power plants, industry, agriculture. However scaling-up those investments to meet climate and energy objectives requires an improved knowledge base in investments and financial flows in those sectors, as well as policy assessment tools.
This is why I4CE has developed since 2013 a “Landscape of domestic climate finance”. It is a systematic tracking of domestic climate investment and related financing flows in France. By highlighting the gap between current investments and climate objectives, it helps generating awareness and engagement with national stakeholders. Aggregating indicators from different sectors into a single, coherent view, it serves as a reference point to track where the transition stands year after year and whereas sectoral analysis improves the understanding of investment policy successes and setbacks.
This report has been designed for those that would like to learn more about climate policy and investments in France. Moreover, by presenting a deep-dive into the roots of the Landscape methodology, it intends to support, if not inspire, any actors who may wish to develop a Landscape in their country.
