At the UN climate conference in Copenhagen in 2009, developed countries pledged to collectively mobilise USD100 billion in climate finance per year to developing countries by 2020. The EU countries including the Netherlands have been reporting on achievements of their share in the common climate finance target. This study aims to find more insights on these achievements and addresses the following questions:
• What is the design of climate finance in different countries and what differences and similarities exist as to how public and private funds are mobilised and spent? To what extent is it possible to get a good understanding of policy coherence?
• On which projects are the mobilised climate finance means spent?
• What are the effects and outcomes from public climate finance for the generation of private finance, in particular with respect to adaptation and mitigation?
The study focused on climate finance activities of six European countries including France, Germany Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The study also looks into the role of the European Union, the EBRD and the EIB in the international climate finance activities of the indicated countries and in general.
