Climate Financing

Strengthening of enabling frameworks, institutional capacities and instruments for financing and investment for the achievement of national climate targets

Issues

Climate finance is one of the priorities for the region.

To move towards low-carbon and climate-resilient development, a shift in investment flows is needed. The complex architecture of climate finance makes it difficult for Latin American countries to access the necessary international and national, local, public and private resources to facilitate NDCs in action. Institutional and management capacities are often insufficient to meet adaptation and mitigation requirements. As such, institutions do not adequately leverage or mobilise all available or potential funds.

The climate governance component of the Euroclima+ programme supports Latin American countries in the design and implementation of policies and instruments for climate finance, at both international and national levels, including UNFCCC funds and the Kyoto Protocol.

 

What can EUROCLIMA+ contribute?

Strengthening

• Strengthening financial instruments associated with policies and plans to combat climate change at the national level, including support for the development of national climate financing strategies.
• Strengthening capacities and instruments within institutions linked to economic and fiscal policy.

Support

  • Support to the development of methodologies to monitor the financial resources allocated to the fight against climate change at the national level.
  • Support for the development of incentive schemes to tackle climate change at the national level.
