Research and analytical partners

Given the breadth of research and analytical work required to address gaps and challenges in tracking finance for climate action, the network and collaborative research process involves organisations with different sets of data and analytical expertise. These include:

  • Relevant parts of the OECD, including its Development Co-operation, Environment, Financial Affairs, and Statistics Directorates, as well as the International Energy Agency.
  • International think tanks and research organisations such as 2° Investing Initiative, BankTrack, CICERO, Climate Policy Initiative, the Institute for Climate Economics, the Overseas Development Institute, and the World Resources Institute.
  • Local research organisations (such as Trade & Industrial Policy Strategies in South Africa) and consultants (such as Trinomics and Profundo in the Netherlands) in the context of country-level pilot studies.
  • Multilateral Development Banks, bilateral development finance institutions and national development banks.
  • Private sector investors and financial institutions.

Stakeholders with relevant data and expertise are encouraged to partner (for instance towards producing joint publications), especially where an organisation does not have the full capacity to deliver on a given project activity, as well as to collaboratively share outputs and interim products across on-going activities.

Government partners and funders

Countries are represented by their ministries of environment, foreign affairs (including development agencies), and finance (treasuries), thereby illustrating the transversal nature of climate-relevant finance across environmental, development and economic considerations. The role of participating delegates is to discuss and set the research agenda, review and fund research proposals, as well as contribute to ensuring progress towards the targeted outputs. In addition, countries are active actors of the collaborative research process by conducting or commissioning pilot studies, thereby testing data availability and the applicability of measurement and estimation methodologies at a national level.

To date, the Research Collaborative has benefited from funding provided by Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, the European Union, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
