Implementing green budget tagging: Feedbacks on benefits and issues

1 January 1970


12th of November at 4pm (Glasgow time- 5pm Paris Time)

Budget items which have an impact on climate can add up to more than 30% of a national budget. Building on international efforts such as the Paris Collaborative on Green Budgeting or the Coalition of Finance Ministers for Climate Action, there is currently a strong momentum around budget tagging exercises, both in developing and developed countries: more than 20 countries have implemented various climate budget tagging systems. The European Commission is currently training 18 of its Member States on Green Budget tagging practices. In South America, Costa Rica,Mexico and Peru are among the countries that work actively towards developing their own tagging system.

This event will focus on concrete feedback on the process of implementing a green budget tagging system, for the benefit of countries that would consider setting up their own tagging. It will gather the perspectives of three countries with very different national circumstances (Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru), along with the more diversified yet less “first-hand” experience of international institutions such as the IADB or the AFD who support budget tagging implementation in various contexts.

    This study takes stock on the experience of some twenty countries and several international development institutions in Environmental Budget Tagging. It identifies the expected benefits and the conditions to achieve them : take into account the measures that are unfavorable to the environment, consider the outcomes of assessed measures and not only their intention, repeat the exercise over time and fit it into the existing administrative culture and processes…

    Op-Ed I Financial regulation and “green recovery”

    The pandemic caused by Covid 19 has triggered a major economic crisis. The emergency treatment of this crisis relied heavily on massive recourse to fiscal and monetary instruments already widely used during the 2008 crisis. But financial regulation was also mobilized to ease or alleviate prudential constraints in order to preserve bank financing for economic players, especially those most affected by the crisis. This illustrates the different facets of the use of financial regulation: primarily intended to ensure the efficient functioning of financial markets and financial stability, it can also be used with economic policy objectives.
