With support from the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) this Guide focuses on adaptation, mitigation & development. It particularly looks at the relationship between climate change and other development sectors such as agriculture & food security, natural resource management, poverty & vulnerability, governance, health, gender, finance, & low carbon energy.
Making sense of climate finance - and why is it important?
Counting money

Evidence shows us that climate change has had, and will continue to have devastating impacts for many people around the world – but is enough being invested where it’s really needed? As people who are not experts in climate finance, it can be difficult to understand the nitty gritty of this area; it isn’t always clear as to what has been promised and whether these promises have become reality. The new Eldis Key Issues Guide to Climate Finance provides an overarching insight into some of the key issues and themes.

We have produced this guide in collaboration with the Climate Funds Update project. The authors have used relevant data and credible research from a rich range of diverse sources, including multimedia, to further support understanding of this complex issue.We are also excited to present a short five minute film where Alice Caravani talks through some of the key components of the guide. The film can be watched at the same time as interacting with the content of the guide itself.
