Briefing Paper: Scoring fast-start climate finance: Leaders and laggards in transparency

Briefing Paper:  Scoring fast-start climate finance: Leaders and laggards in transparency | Climate Change, Agriculture & Food Security | Scoop.it

In 2009, developed countries pledged US$30 billion of ‘fast-start climate finance’. Transparent reporting on climate finance is essential for governments to plan mitigation and adaptation activities and for civil society to hold contributors and recipients to account for how climate funds are spent. This briefing presents a new scorecard based on the extent to which developed countries meet a set of common-sense criteria in their climate finance reports to the UN. It reveals that we have a long way to go in making climate finance transparent and urgently need an international registry of funds that provides comprehensive, detailed, consistent and transparent accounting and reporting measures at the project level.

Research/Africa: Integrating climate change into agricultural research for development in Africa

Research/Africa: Integrating climate change into agricultural research for development in Africa | Climate Change, Agriculture & Food Security | Scoop.it

African agriculture faces the dual challenge of being vulnerable to climate change and largely underfunded. This briefing, commissioned by the European Initiative for Agricultural Research for Development (EIARD), discusses the need to integrate climate change into agricultural research for development, taking into account the synergies and trade-offs of adapting to and mitigating climate change while also boosting food security. This will demand a more strategic and coordinated approach that reflects African realities, responds to African priorities for adaptation and development, and makes the best use of limited resources.
