Large-scale investments are needed to significantly reduce carbon emissions, as well as to adapt cities and societies to the adverse effects of a changing climate. Financing – either public, private or drawn from alternative sources – that seeks to support these mitigation and adaptation actions is known as climate finance.
International climate agreements call for parties with more financial resources to assist those that are less endowed with resources and more vulnerable to the negative effects of climate change.
In the global commitment to fight climate change, the current lack of data regarding international private climate finance is a significant obstacle as it limits the ability of governments to make informed decisions in their attempts to scale up climate projects.
International climate finance commitments to the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean (SEMed) region accounted for
11% of global financial flow in 2019, amounting to 9.12 billion.
Bilateral finance comprised
37% of the overall amount
committed to the SEMed region in 2019. Major bilateral donors include the EU institutions (excluding EIB), France and Germany.
Multilateral climate funds provided the smallest share of
overall climate finance to the SEMed region
with only 2%.
This page aims to facilitate the sharing of climate finance information among decision-makers, including data, climate-related funding opportunities, and climate tracking requirements. In doing so, we hope to enhance the accuracy of the financial commitments as actors can have a better understanding of the financial mechanisms in place in the region as well as a basis for comparison to fund and implement their projects. Stakeholders are therefore encouraged to invest in opportunities and capacitate the development of bankable projects at UfM regional level.
Here you can find the main relevant web-pages of partners and institutions that offer updated information on climate finance. This subcategory will be a reference site of consultancy for decision makers, researchers and anyone interested in climate finance data.
