This literature review of climate financing mechanisms was carried out
in response to a DEWPoint helpdesk enquiry. The Bangladesh Climate
Change Resilience Fund (BCCRF) has been cited in the literature
discussing national climate financing mechanisms as a demonstration case
for Low Income Countries (LICs) to learn from. The literature review
presents an overview of the standard and innovative types of financing
mechanisms available, as well as best practice in establishing national
climate financing mechanisms and the implications for development
planning, drawing heavily from a UNDP guidance paper on the subject. It
makes use of a recent critique of the BCCRF by the Institute for
Development Studies (IDS), and focuses lesson learning around the weak
areas that were identified in this review.
This report was produced by DEW Point, a Resource Centre for
Environment, Water and Sanitation, that was funded by DFID and managed
by a consortium of companies led by Harewelle International Limited. The
Resource Centre closed in 2012.
