CLIMATE STRATEGIES POLICY BRIEF 3

The brief outlines how significant political challenges await negotiators on the road toward the elaboration of robust accounting modalities for climate finance, and aims to facilitate future discussions on that matter. The paper discusses two different purposes of a climate finance accounting system: the assessment of developed countries’ financial effort toward developing countries’ adaptation and mitigation on the one hand and the assessment of resources devoted to climate activities in developing countries or in the whole world on the other hand. The paper outlines how these different purposes have important implications for the features of the accounting systems that need to be built.
