This report studies the ability of two climate finance instruments, the CDM and the GEF, to leverage funds and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in developing countries. It concludes that short-term efficiency in reducing CO2 could be improved by focusing on energy efficiency and use new tools for non-CO2 greenhouse gases leveraged funds are often overestimated, and the efficiency in leveraging funds is a poor indicator for efficiency in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
