Since 2014, I4CE has tracked annually the investments made in France supporting climate action, whether by households, businesses or public authorities. The Landscape of Climate Finance is a powerful tool to fuel public debate, help decision makers assess the performance of their actions, and identify the efforts that remain to be undertaken.
In an effort to improving the transparency of the hypotheses used in the Landscape, I4CE has published in International Economics a detailed description of their methodological approach. This article also aims to assist those who would like to conduct a similar exercise in another country, and to validate the academic rigor of the Domestic Landscape methodology. The article is currently in free access on the site of Elsevier.
