About the event

As 2030 approaches, we have reached a critical point for global cooperation in the fight against climate change. A number of countries are dedicating significant portions of official development assistance to funding climate action — while others lag behind or are beginning to reverse their commitments.

To trace these ever-changing funding flows, the Devex Analytics team parsed five years of climate-related funding data, exploring bilateral ODA funding from 85,000 projects totaling approximately $177 billion. Building on this analysis, we're hosting a webinar to dive deeper into the data: highlighting trends in recipient locations, funding volume, sectors of funding, and prominent projects.

In this webinar, we will cover:

  • An explanation of OECD "Rio markers" and what this data set can tell us about bilateral flows and the increase in climate funding over time.
  • Key data points, including top recipient countries and organizations, major donors, and notable projects.
  • Shifts in funding between climate adaptation versus mitigation, as well as critical areas that have not received the attention of funders.
  • Cross-cutting focus areas, such as the intersection of climate and gender.
  • A case study on small island states, which are some of the most vulnerable countries to climate change.
