Paris Agreement Fund

The Fund is unique in its ability to be directly involved in climate-sensitive investments, both with the public and private sectors. The GCF cooperates directly with the private sector through its Private Sector Mechanism (PSF). As part of its innovation framework, it is able to address significant climate-related risks that enable it to mobilize and cope with additional funding. It offers a wide range of financial products, including grants, loans, subordinated debts, equity and guarantees. This helps meet project needs and adapts to specific investment contexts, including the use of its funds to overcome market barriers for private financing. According to the findings of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the dynamics of aligning climate finance flows with the Paris Agreement are increasing. Which multilateral development banks (MDBs) will follow in the EIB`s footsteps and take steps to support the energy transition? In its report “Aligning Development Co-operation and Climate Action: The Only Way Forward,” the OECD noted that support for energy efficiency and renewable energy in the case of “development financing” has increased since the Paris Agreement, but that it remains undermined by the financing of new energy-based energy from fossil fuels. This means that multilateral suppliers as a whole, which accounted for 77% of fossil fuel financing in 2016 and 2017, need to change. Adaptation issues were at the forefront of the paris agreement. Collective long-term adaptation objectives are included in the agreement and countries must be accountable for their adaptation measures, making adaptation a parallel element of the mitigation agreement. [46] Adaptation objectives focus on improving adaptive capacity, resilience and vulnerability limitation. [47] Although the agreement has been welcomed by many, including French President Francois Hollande and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon,[67] criticism has also emerged.

James Hansen, a former NASA scientist and climate change expert, expressed anger that most of the agreement is made up of “promises” or goals, not firm commitments. [98] He called the Paris talks a fraud with “nothing, only promises” and believed that only a generalized tax on CO2 emissions, which is not part of the Paris agreement, would force CO2 emissions down fast enough to avoid the worst effects of global warming. [98] The EMB`s activities are consistent with developing countries` priorities through the principle of developing country responsibility, and the Fund has established a direct approach to enable national and sub-national organizations to obtain funding directly and not just through international intermediaries. In 2018, EUR 1.4 billion was allocated to adjustment projects and EUR 0.2 billion to public adjustment policy loans, for a total amount of EUR 1.6 billion in adjustment commitments. 55% of these funds have been allocated to projects on the African continent. The complexity of climate finance is illustrated by data gaps and lively negotiations, which are characterized by differences of opinion: what is “new and additional” climate funding; whether climate finance should be excluded from the non-consideration of official development assistance (ODA); and the use of private sector investment to meet climate finance needs. In the end, all parties recognized the need to “prevent, minimize and address losses and damages,” but in particular any mention of compensation or liability is excluded. [11] The Convention also takes up the Warsaw International Loss and Damage Mechanism, an institution that will attempt to answer questions about how to classify, address and co-responsible losses.
