Budgeting for climate change: How governments have used national budgets to articulate a response to climate change. Lessons Learned from over twenty Climate Public Expenditure and Institutional Reviews.
UNDP first developed the CPEIR methodology in 2011. Since then, over 20 countries around the world have completed or are implementing CPEIRs. This report synthesizes the lessons learned from this growing body of knowledge, organized against three pillars of the CPEIR process: evaluation of national policies; analysis of the institutions involved; and financial review of climate relevant expenditures. Annex 6 contains a general comparative analysis of the different methodological frameworks used to assess public management of climate finance: CPEIR (UNDP), CPEIR (World Bank), Climate Finance Readiness Assessment (GIZ), and the Pacific Climate Change Finance Assessment Framework.
