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.

Melting glaciers: Peruvian requests German utility RWE to pay for protective measures

It is the first time in Europe that one of the world’s largest polluters is prompted to pay for the safety of a person at risk of climate change consequences

A person affected by climate change has made the unprecedented move to launch a claim against a European carbon major, demanding that the company contribute to urgently needed protective measures: Peruvian citizen Saúl Luciano Lliuya, with the help of the renowned environmental lawyer Dr. Roda Verheyen (Hamburg), demands payment for safety works from German utility RWE. Mr Luciano Lliuya’s property as well as large parts of his hometown Huaraz are prone to a so-called glacial lake outburst flood from Lake Palcacocha located upstream from the city. >> mehr

Financing for energy efficiency in buildings in China and Germany

– a scoping study –

This paper describes policies for financing energy efficiency in buildings in China and Germany. In both countries energy consumption of the building sector constitutes a large share of the overall energy consumption. While the situation in regard to the size and age of the existing building stock and the construction rate of new buildings differs in China and Germany, there are nevertheless some similar challenges where sharing of experiences could be helpful. >> mehr

How can the Green Climate Fund initiate a paradigm shift?

CDKN Policy Brief - October 2013

World leaders and governments paved the way for the establishment of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) agreements made at the Conference of Parties (COPs) in Copenhagen (2009) and Cancún (2010). The objective of the Green Climate Fund is to achieve a paradigm shift towards low-carbon and climateresilient development pathways. This requires ambition, in the design of funded activities and in the provision of financial resources to the GCF. >> mehr

From Carbon Market to Climate Finance: The Use of ETS Revenues

This paper pursues the question of whether revenues from Chinese emission trading scheme (ETS) pilots, and a future national carbon market, should be used for national climate action in China and what topics should be addressed. Firstly, it will discuss why carbon market revenues should be used for climate finance and how this may be accomplished in theory. The paper then describes the experience of other countries, particularly in the EU, in using ETS revenues for climate actions. Finally recommendations are provided for the Chinese pilot ETS. >> mehr

Using EU ETS Auctioning Revenues for Climate Action

What is the appetite for earmarking within specific EU member states?

The European Union Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS) is facing serious problems. Clear decisions are necessary to ensure that the EU ETS will realise its double potential during the third EU ETS period as a key instrument for reducing emissions and generating revenues for national and international climate action.The paper will shed light on the potential of the EU ETS as a finance instrument. And it will “reactivate” the question regarding earmarking the EU ETS revenues. >> mehr

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. Of course, each donor country decides for itself when it perceives a fund to be ready and sufficiently trustworthy for funding and each donor country will probably have its own set of items it wants to see addressed before it can pro-vide pledges. 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
