Developing countries need significant funding to build more
climate-resilient, low-carbon economies. Much of this funding may come
from international sources. How are developing and developed countries
- and international institutions - working in partnership to disburse
climate finance effectively? What's required to make climate finance
fair, transparent and accountable?

WRI and the International Development Law Organisation (IDLO) have
produced a set of briefings - the “Inside Stories on Climate Compatible
Development” - that explore different countries' experiences in
designing and delivering climate compatible development. Case studies
from Indonesia, Bangladesh and Grenada highlight the knotty questions
and stakeholder dynamics involved in disbursing climate finance. They
offer important lessons for other countries – recipient and donor alike
– in how to structure and govern climate finance flows. Read more
