Advancing climate finance and investment

Questions of finance and investment are at the heart of discussions on mitigation and adaptation at all levels and in all contexts.

Internationally, recent UNFCCC negotiations have centred on finance, with key debates on the amounts and forms of finance required, and on the institutional frameworks needed to stimulate, allocate and oversee the funds.

This theme extends our work on carbon markets as a central tool in raising and spending carbon finance, as well as examining the ‘multi-level governance’ of climate finance from an interdisciplinary perspective, including human geography, international relations and political economics.

The theme leader for Advancing climate finance and investment is Sam Fankhauser
