Global landscape of climate finance 2021

Climate Policy Initiative

The 2021 edition of Climate Policy Initiative’s Global Landscape of Climate Finance provides a comprehensive overview of global climate-related primary investment.

The analysis finds that total climate finance has steadily increased over the last decade, reaching USD 632 billion in 2019/2020, but flows have slowed in the last few years. This is a worrying trend given that COVID-19’s impact on climate finance is yet to be fully observed. The increase in annual climate finance flows between 2017/2018 and 2019/2020 was only 10% compared to previous periods, when it grew more than 24%.
