Publication of the report “Practical Methods for Assessing Private Climate Finance Flows”

The study has been carried out by Gaia Consulting Ltd and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) for NOAK, a working group for global climate negotiations under the Nordic Council of Ministers. The report illustrates a number of methodological options for measuring private flows mobilised by developed countries through their use of public finance instruments.

It will be complemented by other on-going activities under the Research Collaborative investigating broader approaches for estimating mobilised private climate finance arising from the use of both direct (finance) and indirect public interventions (such as policies), as well as underlying market conditions.
