Climate Finance Tracking in Practice
Abstract: Sharing the CARE & Partners for Resilience experience in tracking $6.2 billion of adaptation finance across 112 projects funded by 25 international donors – an experience unique in its focus on tracking finance to the local level and assessing its adaptation relevance. With civil society partners, we piloted a methodology to track international adaptation finance and assess projects to verify whether they are correctly marked as ‘adaptation’. We tracked and assessed adaptation finance commitments reported to the OECD-DAC by international donors between 2013-2017, in Ghana, Uganda, Ethiopia, Nepal, Vietnam and Philippines. In this interactive session we will briefly set out the background of this methodology including the Rio Markers and the Multilateral Development Banks (MDB) three-step approach, share the first findings of our research, and our lessons learnt in using such a tool in the Philippines and Uganda – and engage with the session participants to tap into their experiences and valuable insights.
