Paris Agreement Funding For Developing Countries

An OECD report has shown that efforts need to be stepped up if developed countries plan to deliver on their pledge to make $100 billion a year available to the global South from 2020. Environmental journal. Mbeva K, Pauw WP (2016) Self-differentiation of countries` responsibilities: combating climate change through planned national contributions, discussion paper 4/2016. German Development Institute/German Institute for Development (ED), Bonn, Germany The EU continues to defend the goal of industrialized countries to mobilise $100 billion a year to help developing countries by 2020. The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is the world`s largest specialized fund to help developing countries reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and improve their ability to respond to climate change. It was established in 2010 by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The CCF plays a crucial role in complying with the Paris Agreement and supports the goal of keeping the average global temperature increase well below 2 degrees Celsius. This is done by passing climate finance on to developing countries that, along with other nations, have pledged to fight climate change. Three-quarters of the money comes from public sources, and only 20% of the funds come from industry. Donations account for more than one-third of bilateral funding and about 10% of multilateral funding. And loans account for 60% of bilateral financing and nearly 90% of multilateral financing.

Secondly, is the ambition mechanism of the Paris Agreement compromised because the self-differentiation of aid is not compatible with the subtle differentiation of the Paris Agreement? We argue that this could well be a retrospective. One hundred and thirty-six developing countries have stated that the implementation of their NDC depends on at least one form of international aid (see Pauw et al., 2019), meaning that they cannot be held responsible for the failure to implement their NDCs if they do not receive this support. Specifically, by reporting on the implementation and implementation of their NDCs, they can, within the framework of the transparency of Article 13, highlight these conditions in their NDCs. Both of these issues need to be the subject of a political approach. If self-differentiation is compatible with subtle differentiation, the CBDR-RC compromise of the Paris Agreement would be put in place and the NDCs would be able to play their role as key vessels in the implementation of the Paris Agreement. That is why we recommend that developed countries include their project to help developing countries implement the NDCs in their NdS (Pauw et al. (2018); ONU-OHLLRS (2019); UNESCO (2018); UNFCCC (2019); UNFCCC (2014); UNFCCC (2013); 1997: UNFCCC; United Nations (1992). Compared to the UNFCCC, the Kyoto Protocol and even the Copenhagen agreement, the subtle differentiation of the 2015 Paris Agreement is much more pronounced (see Table 2 in the additional online material). There are 19 cases of subtle differentiation from country by-products, some substantive issues or procedures (see Table 1). This is most clearly apparent from funding and capacity building, but also from mitigation, adaptation, technology transfer (both in the preamble and in Article 13, but not in Article 10 on technology transfer) and the transparency framework. In this sense, the subtle differentiation covers the main objectives of the Paris Agreement in accordance with Article 2 (reduction, adaptation and funding), even if this provision does not lack subtle differentiation. Article 8 on losses and damages does not make the state of differentiation, as it does not include any obligation for parties other than “improving understanding” (UNFCCC, 2015, Section 8.3).

The complexity of climate finance is illustrated by data gaps and lively negotiations, which are characterized by differences of opinion: what is “new and additional” climate funding; whether climate finance should be excluded from the non-consideration of official development assistance (ODA); and the use of private sector investment to meet the need for
