Guiding questions

  • What is climate finance? What are the main frameworks and definitions?
  • How does climate finance relate to other financial flows, such as climate debt, energy subsidies, infrastructure finance, development assistance?
  • What do participants consider to be the important principles that should guide climate finance? How does this influence what should ‘count’ as climate finance in an ethical and/or legal sense?
  • What are existing climate finance flows and institutions, and how do they measure up to participants’ principles?
