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?

  • Jennifer Morgan, Director of Climate and Energy Program, World Resources Institute
  • Ari Huhtala, Director of Policy and Programmes, Climate Development Knowledge Network
  • Rauf Prasodjo, Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies
  • Clifford Polycarp, Senior Associate, World Resources Institute
  • Sarah Mason-Case, Legal Officer, International Development Law Organization
CDKN, 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 details about the ‘Inside Stories’ at
