Measuring the effectiveness of public climate finance delivery at the national level

This paper describes an approach to measuring the effectiveness of the national systems that underpin public climate finance delivery. It assesses three interlinked elements of government administration: the policy environment that supports climate change expenditures, the institutional architecture that determines relevant roles and responsibilities, and the public financial system through which climate change-related expenditures are channelled. It identifies key principles of effective climate finance delivery for each of these three elements, and formulates criteria and indicators that reflect a progression towards compliance with those principles.
