Policy Brief

Access to climate finance for the most vulnerable

Cover Policy Brief document

Since the adoption of the Copenhagen Accord in 2009, international negotiations on climate finance under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) have focused primarily on quantitative elements, in particular the amount of financial resources provided over a certain amount of time or the resources allocated to certain thematic areas. While some qualitative elements, such as predictability, sustainability, additionality, adequacy and accessibility of climate finance, have played a role in debates, overall they have not received the same level of attention.

This policy brief aims to provide an in-depth analysis on the issue of accessibility of climate finance. The brief relies on publicly available literature and data, as well as input received from stakeholders during a dedicated thematic roundtable.
