The analysis focuses on climate finance flows to the SEMed region, which have been committed by major international financial institutions and donors in 2016.
The study included relevant data gathered from bilateral donors, multilateral donors as well as additional climate funds, programmes and initiatives from public and private donors. Interviews were also conducted to gather more accurate information on their climate finance tracking records and climate finance definitions. The detailed analysis delved into the types of projects, the purpose of the finance, the nature of the beneficiary and types of financial instruments used in various countries by different funds. The results were cross-referenced with data from the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) database and the Joint Report on Multilateral Development Banks’ Climate Finance.
The countries included in the assessment were Albania, Algeria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritania, Montenegro, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia, and Turkey, as well as (to the extent possible) Libya and Syria.
