CarbonBrief - Mapped: where climate funds spend their money

In 2009, countries meeting in Copenhagen for the 15th UN climate conference set a new monetary goal. They agreed that, by 2020, developed countries should be jointly “mobilising” $100bn a year to help developing countries tackle climate change.

Multilateral climate funds, such as the Green Climate Fund (GCF), are one of several ways this finance is distributed. They distribute public money as both loans and grants, thus are often viewed as particularly important institutions for the $100bn goal.

Carbon Brief has mapped more than 1,000 projects being funded by the four main multilateral climate funds. The interactive map illustrates where around the world these funds are supporting climate projects.
