Financing

The low-carbon, climate resilient pathways set out in countries’ NDCs and associated plans, require significant financial investment for their implementation. Mobilising investment includes the identification and assessment of flows, the development of financing and investment strategies, as well as the policies, regulation and financial instruments that can be put in place to reduce investment risks (and to increase returns). To read more about the NDC Cluster work in this field please visit the thematic working group page.
