Copenhagen's climate finance promise: six key questions


Roberts, T J; Stadelmann, M; Huq, S (2010). Copenhagen's climate finance promise: six key questions. IIED Briefing Papers:1-4.

Abstract

One of the promises emerging from the confusion of the Copenhagen climate talks focused on climate finance. Ramping up to US$100 billion a year starting in 2020, the promised finance would support developing countries in adapting to climate impacts and adopting low-carbon pathways. This briefing explores the wording in the Copenhagen Accord to unearth six big questions about the promise – any one of which could seriously challenge the trust these funds were designed to build.
