CDKN aims to help decision makers select and deploy financial instruments (such as grants, concessional loans, equity and guarantees) to fund climate adaptation and mitigation activities. This guide summarises the barriers to financing mitigation and adaptation activities, as well as discussing factors to consider then selecting and implementing financial instruments. The key financial instruments and modalities considered in this guide are discussed in relation to the Green Climate Fund, but the lessons are applicable to other channels for climate finance.
