The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

Development Finance

Special Issue of the Journal "International Environmental Agreements: Politics, Law and Economics"

We would like to draw your attention to “Managing fragmentation and complexity in the emerging system of international climate finance", a special issue of the journal International Environmental Agreements: Politics, Law and Economics. The special issue, edited by Jonathan Pickering, Carola Betzold and Jakob Skovgaard, focuses on mapping the fragmented climate finance system, analysing the causes and consequences of fragmentation and discussing policy responses. This is done through in-depth articles covering topics including the allocation and ambiguity of adaptation finance, mobilising private adaptation finance, and exploring the role of Multilateral Development Banks, finance ministries and domestic party politics in climate finance allocation and negotiations. The introduction and a few other articles are open access (see below).

The authors' post on the INOGOV blog provides more explanation of the post-US election state of affairs of the climate finance system and of the contributions of the special issue.
