For arriving on consensus to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on reducing emissions, Conference of the Parties (COP 21) and Kyoto Protocol (CMP 11) will be held in Paris, France from 30 November to 11 December 2015. In addition to the macro policy framework, the fact remains that there is a pressing need to enhance mitigation initiatives and adaptation responses to address issues in protecting vulnerable from climate change. This calls for a convergence among public and private development agencies who have long been tackling the issue of vulnerability reduction through their respective activities such as disaster risk reduction, mitigation of climate change, environmental management and poverty elevation Climate change is a pressing issue globally and it calls for a strong governing framework which makes the roles and responsibilities more transparent at every stage. In reality, climate change is here now, and it is as much opportunity as risk for those who are wise enough to adapt early on.

Since 2008, USD 4 billion has been pledged to five multilateral climate funds that support efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and degradation plus conservation (REDD+). Despite strong interest in the potential to harness market based mechanisms to support REDD+ programmes, the future of such mechanisms remains highly uncertain. The last year has seen few approvals for REDD+, although there has been some progress in disbursement. While since 2008, USD 2 billion has been approved for REDD+ activities just USD 17 million has been approved in the last 12 months. Norway is the largest contributor of REDD+ finance, followed by the UK, Germany and the United States. There have been some significant changes in the REDD+ finance architecture and increasing efforts to support developing countries’ move beyond readiness and capacity building to demonstration programmes and emission reductions with payments based on verified results.

This publication describes an innovative financing solution for enhancing both financially bankable as well as environmentally sustainable infrastructure projects. A large financing need challenges climate-adjusted infrastructure in developing Asia, estimated at $26 trillion till 2030. This necessitates crowding-in private sources to meet financing, efficiency, and technology gaps. However, a lack of bankable projects is a major hurdle. This publication suggests one possible innovative financing approach. The Green Finance Catalyzing Facility (GFCF) proposes a blended finance framework for governments and development entities to better leverage development funds for risk mitigation, generate a pipeline of bankable green infrastructure projects, and directly catalyze private finance. The GFCF provides useful inputs for the current debate on mainstreaming green finance into country financial systems.
