Access to climate finance
Public climate finance funds are channeled through different institutions, mostly bilateral and multilateral financial institutions or national government aid agencies. Public and private intermediaries are key players in channeling and raising climate finance.
There is a wide range of mechanisms to access international climate finance. An overview of the global architecture of public climate financing mechanisms is available in the 2019 report of the Climate Funds Update.
Canada works closely with its delivery partners to implement the $2.65B climate finance commitment. The illustration below shows how Canadian international climate finance reaches developing countries.
