Climate finance and water security: Synthesis report

Climate finance and water security: Synthesis report

This synthesis report summarises research on how climate finance has been spent so far, and whether or not it has been spent on improving people’s water security.

The report highlights that the global community has committed to mobilise US $100 billion every year, from 2020 onwards. The study aims to identify the type and scale of national and subnational programmes and projects that have been funded by climate finance and how they relate to local water security. Findings are summarised from three case studies in Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Zambia.

There is a brief description of the definitions and methodology; a description of the water security, climate change trends and expected impacts for each country; a comparative summary of climate policy and finance trends across all countries based on previous findings from each case study; a summary of the main conclusions; and a provision of key recommendations.
