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.
The Global Landscape of Climate Finance 2019 shows that finance for climate action reached USD 579 billion in 2017/2018, yet still falls far short of the economy-wide transition needed.
In this study, CPI identifies the changes the Paris Agreement implies for the role of Development Finance Institutions – specifically members of the IDFC – and how they may implement these changes through targeted activities.
The Energizing Finance series, developed by Sustainable Energy for All in partnership with Climate Policy Initiative, is the first and only in-depth attempt to capture multiple years of data on finance for the two key areas of energy access: electrification and clean cooking.
Climate Policy Initiative, with the support of Agence Française de Développement and the Advisory Finance Group of the World Bank, have examined the risks to the economy of South Africa – and its government, municipalities, companies and financial institutions – from a global economic transition to a low-carbon economy.

During the United Nations Climate Action Summit 2019, IDFC resolved to mobilize significant volumes of financing for meeting climate and development goals.
In this brief, we set out potential methods to fill data gaps in adaptation tracking in the Landscape and propose methods to measure progress. The technical approaches we propose to identify flows in imperfect datasets are intended as a starting point for future iterations of adaptation finance tracking and can serve to identify information that should be tracked and reported by local governments and companies. Ideally, applying the proposed framework will improve our understanding of adaptation finance and feed into larger tracking efforts.
