Making sense of climate finance: Linking public finance and national climate change policy in the Asia-Pacific region
This paper provides central policy decision makers and donors with accessible guidance on how governments can make use of their national budget systems to prioritize a response to climate change. It also explores how governments can make complementary use of domestic and international sources of public finance to resource a climate change response. Targeted principally at central policy decision makers, the paper may also be of interest to researchers and those working with donors who are involved in financing public interventions on climate change in developing countries. Chapters 3 and 4 provide an introduction to national budgeting processes and how international climate finance can support and complement these.
