Abstract

Routledge, 2013. 228 pp (incl. index), ISBN 978-1-84971-405-1. Climate finance has become a key topic in the discussion on how to address the challenge of global warming. Transitioning to a low-carbon and climate-resilient world will require significant amounts of additional finance and investment. According to estimates by the International Energy Agency, such finance and investment needs amount to more than us $1 trillion a year in the period up to 2050. 1 Making sense of the rich, fragmented, and number-loaded information available on climate finance can be a challenging task, because relevant data and findings tend to be scattered across various policy documents and reports. Against this background, International Climate Finance , edited by Erik Haites, is useful in providing an authoritative overview of international climate finance discussions written by well-known experts, many of whom work at the forefront of the policy process.
