CPI’s analysts and advisors work to improve the most important energy and land use policies in the world, with a particular focus on finance. Our efforts help nations grow while addressing increasingly scarce resources and climate risk.
CPI's team will host and present at several events at COP24 that cover the global landscape of climate finance, emerging instruments to drive sustainable finance, approaches to achieve the transformation towards low-carbon climate resilient development pathways, scaling up finance for climate resilience and adaptation, and other topics.
Global Climate Finance: An Updated View 2018 shows that global investment toward low-carbon and climate-resilient actions reached a high of USD $472 billion in 2015, before falling to $455 billion in 2016.
Over their lifetimes, the nine 2018 Lab instruments have the potential to collectively mobilize multiple billions of dollars in investment, and reduce emissions by an amount roughly equivalent to the 2013 carbon footprint of Paris.
This four-report series looks at paths to renewable energy penetration in India along different dimensions including the social costs, macroeconomic impacts, environmental impacts, financial risk, and flexibility considerations.

The ultimate objective is to inform Indonesia’s public resource allocation strategy so that it will address the most critical barriers to clean energy investment and improve public capital efficiency.
The Energizing Finance series is the first and only in-depth attempt to capture multiple years of data on investment for the two key areas of energy access: electrification and clean cooking. It focuses on public and private finance commitments in 20 developing countries – known as the high-impact countries – that together account for nearly 80% of those living without access to sustainable energy.
