Development and Climate Finance

Since the international climate negotiations have achieved the agreement, that industrialized nations should provide 100 billion US-dollars on a yearly base until 2020, the international Climate Finance has increased significantly. Nevertheless, old commitments concerning the support of countries from the global south in fighting poverty did not become obsolete. Moreover, development and climate protection goals can often be combined very well. However, one should observe carefully, how Development and Climate Finance are calculated; if and how both goals are interconnected efficiently; and which role the private sector could be accounted to in order to be useful. These are the central points of SÜDWIND.
