The Governance of Climate Finance in Africa, Asia and Latin America : Some Critical Reflections

"The context for this briefing paper is a civil society meeting hosted by the Corruption and Governance Programme of the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) in Cape Town in September 2010. Experts based in Africa, Asia and Latin America presented papers discussing the regional contexts and the national and subnational experiences with climate funds in their regions. These papers have been compiled into an ISS report on monitoring the governance of climate finance. The study offers an approach that is grounded in the realities and common experiences in funding arrangements across developing countries in the three regions studied. The issues raised here reflect on some of the findings of that report."
