The climate emergency, and the commitments of countries to support the objectives of the Paris Agreement have highlighted the need, in the very short term, to increase and reorient public and private funding towards the sectors necessary for the low-carbon transition, while reducing the flow of unfavorable climate finance.

 

Although these projects are implemented by a wide range of project promoters, governments, financial institutions, and especially public development banks, have an essential role to play. However, even the magnitude of their task is difficult to estimate: the volumes and complexity of finance flows make it difficult to assess the current situation of financing flows, and of the gap that needs to be bridged to achieve carbon neutrality.

 

I4CE, the Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) and Public development banks such as the French Agency for Development (AFD), the Inter-American Development Bank (BID) have launched several initiatives aimed at assessing the level of progress of countries with regard to the low-carbon transition, with the aim of supporting the scale-up of investments and expenditure needed to achieve national emissions reductions objectives.

 

Some of the tools that can be mobilized by development banks, such as climate investments landscapes, green budgeting, and PEFA Climate will be discussed in the first half of this webinar ; in the second half, the French Development Agency, the Inter-American Development Bank and GIZ will provide insights as to how these tools can be mobilized to accelerate the green financial and budgetary transition.

    “Using Carbon revenues”, new report from the World Bank, AFD and I4CE

    The recent proliferation of carbon pricing schemes and the increase in associated prices have led to a significant increase in carbon-related revenues.  As of May 1, 2019, 25 carbon taxes and 26 emissions trading schemes (ETS) were in operation around the world. Jurisdictions covered by one or more explicit carbon prices account for about 60% of global GDP.
