Enhancing transparency of climate finance under the Paris Agreement: lessons from experience

Climate finance is an indispensable enabler of enhanced climate action. Transparency regarding the scale and type of climate finance provided and mobilised by developed and other countries, and received by developing countries, is important for national and international purposes. This paper explores climate finance information in the context of United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)-related climate finance goals. It focuses on data collection, reporting and review, and how the transparency of information on climate finance provided, mobilised and received could be improved from current arrangements in order to meet the aims set out in the Paris Agreement.
