CIERP & CREATE Research Seminar at Tufts

"Mobilizing Climate Finance: How and Why Fund Design Matters" with Rishikesh Bhandary, Tufts Institute of the Environment. How do developing countries mobilize finance to address climate change? This talk looks at the role played by national climate funds in crowding in finance from different sources. How do countries choose the institutional design features of these funds? What trade-offs do they face? The national climate funds in focus are Brazil’s Amazon Fund, the Bangladesh Climate Change Resilience Fund, Ethiopia’s Climate Resilient Green Economy Facility, and Indonesia’s funding instrument to tackle forest loss. These funds were first of their kinds when they were set up and their experience forms a vital to understand climate action in developing countries.
