Financing Mitigation and Adaptation in Developing Countries: New options and mechanisms

By Jo-Ellen Parry, Dennis Tirpak on June 22, 2009
This background paper addresses financing issues relating to mitigation and adaptation in developing countries under the UNFCCC. The paper reviews current funding mechanisms, proposals for additional funding sources, and a proposal relating to what should be funded and mechanisms to structure a new financial agreement.

The information in this paper provides input to the analysis in the main report of the series, Global Climate Change Goals: Encouraging Developing Country Participation and should be read in conjunction with that report. The second background paper in the series is, State of the Carbon Market: How the future market can encourage developing country participation.
