This workshop was organised to share experience of existing methodologies to track private sector flows for climate change and to discuss how these methodologies could be reinforced; and to raise the level of understanding of the integration of climate change flows from multilateral development banks (MDB) into the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) Creditor Reporting System (CRS) database. It was held back-to-back with a meeting of the OECD Working Party on Climate, Investment and Development.
