Following the Money: Reviewing Fast-start Finance Contributions

It is imperative to understand where and how developed countries are delivering on their climate finance pledges. This event presented key lessons from case studies of the UK and US fast-start finance contributions, as well as preliminary conclusions from a similar study of Japan’s contribution. The studies were led by ODI, WRI, and IGES, respectively, in collaboration with the Open Climate Network, a partnership of researchers and civil society to track country progress on climate change. The presentation was followed by a panel discussion and a Q&A session.
