Klimafinanzierung

Die Industrieländer haben im „Kopenhagen-Akkord“ zugesagt, Maßnahmen zur Emissionsminderung, zum Regenwaldschutz und zur Anpassung an den Klimawandel in Entwicklungs- und Schwellenländern zu finanzieren. Bis 2020 sollen die Mittel auf 100 Mrd. $ anwachsen. Wir setzen uns dafür ein, dass Deutschland dazu seinen fairen Beitrag leistet – und zwar im Rahmen einer kohärenten Klimafinanzierungsstrategie.

Green Climate Fund: Timely Action Needs Early Pledges

The present discussion paper describes why early pledges for the Green Climate Fund (GCF) are important for early action – hence a timely start of project support – of the GCF.

Nevertheless, this short discussion paper looks at the interdependence between the need for early pledging for the GCF and the necessary progress of the GCF operationalization process. >> mehr
