Practical Methods for Assessing Private Climate Finance Flows

image of Practical Methods for Assessing Private Climate Finance Flows

In spite of the climate finance commitment by the developed countries to mobilise jointly 100 billion USD per year by 2020 to address the needs of developing countries from a wide variety of sources, there is no clear agreement on the types of funds that might count as mobilised by developed countries and what private finance flows could be considered as mobilised for climate action in developing countries. This study identifies ten considerations that are key to estimating mobilised private climate finance. An example methodology is proposed for tracking mobilised private investment and the methodology is tested on three Nordic case studies. Through the further refinement of methodologies, it should be possible to develop common systems for M&E of finance enabling a clearer understanding of the finance landscape and the effectiveness of interventions for mobilising private investment.

Conclusions

The overall objective of this review was to identify and apply practical methods that could be used for assessing mobilised private climate finance, with a focus on the direct use of public finance instruments. Our approach to achieve the project goal was constructed on the basis of a detailed literature review taking careful note of recent, on-going and planned initiatives within this rapidly evolving area, including the initiatives of the OECD Research Collaborative.
