From NDCs to National Climate Investment Plans: domestic investment and climate finance tracking

finance-domL

Transforming the NDCs into financeable investment plans requires an understanding of existing domestic and international flows – private or public – in all countries. Practitioners and country representatives discussed how this data and cross-country comparison can help reorient and scale up financial flows.

Program

Moderator: Ian Cochran, I4CE – Institute for Climate Economics

Speakers:

  • Jane Wilkinson, Climate Policy Initiative
  • Lauren McNicoll, OECD Research Collaborative
  • Sandra Guzman, GFLAC
  • Marek Soanes, International Institute for Environment and Development

Country Reps for Discussion:

  • David Kaluba, Zambian Climate Change Secretariat
  • Representative from the Indonesian government

Key takeaways : 

Tracking domestic climate finance is a key exercise to support NDCs as it allows:

  • Report – internally (government, parliament, general public) or externally (EU, UNEP)
  • Diagnose – effectiveness (climate, GHG), efficiency (leverage, money), gaps (vs. estimates)
  • Compare – with other countries, sectors, etc.
  • Recommend – propose how to close the gap
  • Coordinate & Plan – a helicopter view, basis for strategies for financing investment, connect capital and pipeline of projects
  • Modeling – represent financial channels and their impact the economy

All presenters stressed the importance of moving from NDCs to climate finance plans looking at both the investment costs, but also the methods and means of financing the needed investments. The following statements were made :

  • Volume should not be the key focus or indicator: it is essential to look at the efficiency of actions and their impact. This is required both in terms of mitigation and adaptation outcomes, as well as mobilizing additional public and private finance.
  • It is key to look at investments and flows going to national and subnational actors as both are in important positions to implement actions and establish key policies.
  • Engaging the private sector is necessary as it will play a significant role in scaling up from the billions to the trillions to achieve climate objectives and, as called for by Article 2.1c, align all financial flows.
  • Capacity building is needed – both in terms of accessing finance, as well as designing and developing national domestic climate finance plans.

    CARBON OFFSET PROJECTS IN THE AGRICULTURAL SECTOR

    By Claudine FOUCHEROT et Valentin BELLASSEN The agricultural sector accounts for 14% of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. If we also take into account carbon emissions and sequestration from upstream – production of fertilisers, deforestation, etc. – and downstream – bio-energies, etc. – the share rises to 30%. Many practices and technologies enable agriculture’s impact […]

    Free allocation in the European Emissions Trading System (EU ETS): identifying efficient mechanisms by 2030

    In a world with asymmetrical climate policies, the conclusions of the European Council of October 2014 agreed on continuing the allocation of free CO2 emissions allowances beyond 2020 to industrial sectors in the EU ETS. This statement has been confirmed in the European Commission’s proposal to revise EU ETS directive for phase IV disclosed in […]

    Hydrogen : France still has many challenges to face

    2 billion euros: this is the amount that the French government will bet on hydrogen until 2022 as part of its recovery plan. An amount that will increase to reach 5.7 billion by 2030. I4CE invited researchers Jean-Pierre Ponssard from Polytechnique/CNRS and Guy Meunier from INRAE, both members of the Energy & Prosperity Chair, to analyze France’s “hydrogen plan”.
