Climate Finance 101 – A Primer on Climate Finance

Climate finance forms a huge part of climate action.

This briefer answers the important questions on how climate finance is established under the UNFCCC, the Paris Agreement (PA), and basic information on where we are now on the Global South’s demand for adequate, non-debt-creating, unconditional, and urgently-delivered climate finance through UNFCCC climate finance mechanisms.
