A ‘race to the top’ or global crawl? Despite global climate negotiations at COP27 and the G20 inching far too slowly towards the financial transformations we need to tackle climate change, country-level progress is being made. A common framework would help track that progress.

One of the three main goals of the Paris Agreement is to ‘make finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development’, as stated in Article 2.1c. This long-term goal recognises that, complementary to an increase in finance that supports climate action, there needs to be redirection of finance, both public and private, that locks countries into a future of low emissions and higher resilience. Given that Article 2.1c has yet to be fully operationalised, this case study examines the progress towards implementing it in Germany. It is a first attempt to provide a comprehensive analysis framework for the implementation of Article 2.1c.

Germanwatch, NewClimate Institute and CAN International published the 18th edition of the Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI): Denmark, Sweden, Chile, Morocco and India lead the ranking this year / Iran, Saudi Arabia and Kazakhstan come in last / The US and China perform very low — though the US rises three ranks compared with last year, whilst China drops 13 ranks

The current energy crisis clearly demonstrates how the world remains dependent on fossil fuels. However, there is a number of countries that have a better standing than others. They took ambitious steps in climate mitigation and rapidly developed energy efficiency and renewable energies. Today, Germanwatch, NewClimate Institute and CAN International published the Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) 2023, a ranking of the 59 largest emitters worldwide

The majority of signatories of the Glasgow Statement is still lacking adequate policies which ban finance for the international unabated fossil fuel sector, including their voting behaviour at multilateral development banks. Germanwatch analysed the current status of implementation of the Glasgow Statement and developed recommendations for appropriate policies and well defined exception criteria in order to align with the Paris Agreement and stay below 1,5°.

The world is paying close attention to the multilateral development banks' (MDBs') potential for financing global climate action. MDBs have committed to aligning their financing with the Paris Agreement, and an explicit approach towards Paris-alignment of policy-based finance has been long expected from them. This working paper explains why this is important and what such an approach would entail.

Myth no. 2: Renewable energies are not reliable enough and their expansion is too slow to ensure access to energy for all
This blog series aims to debunk ‘myths’ about trade-offs between climate action and development. Addressing political decision-makers, practitioners in multilateral development banks as well as staff of civil society organisations and the interested public, three blog posts will provide them with evidence to refute widespread misconceptions about the effects of climate action on development. They will also include recommendations for multilateral development banks on how to contribute to strengthening the link between climate action and development and thereby highlight win-win opportunities and avoid trade-offs.
