Climate Finance Tracking in South Africa

  • Year: 2013

Official project name: Tracking Climate Finance Inflows to South Africa

Client: Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

Funder: Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

Duration: 15 January 2013 - 21 March 2013


TIPS was commissioned in 2013 by the OECD to carry out a case study focused on the state of the tracking of public and private climate-related inflows to South Africa.

The study investigates South Africa’s strategy on climate finance (tracking). It then describes South Africa’s project-based approach for tracking and explores what data on public (domestic and foreign) and private climate finance inflows are available in South Africa and how information is collected. Finally, the paper highlights the challenges of tracking climate finance in South Africa and formulates recommendations.

The research findings were presented at the OECD/IEA Climate Change Expert Group (CCXG) Global Forum in Paris, France in March 2013. 

Tracking Private Climate Finance – Research Collaborative

The Research Collaborative is an open network, co-ordinated and hosted by the OECD Secretariat, of interested governments, relevant research institutions and international finance institutions.

The goal is to partner and share best available data, expertise and information to advance policy-relevant research in a comprehensive and timely manner. The project is designed to serve as a co-ordinating platform for identifying research priorities and gaps, sharing information, weaving a coherent narrative across what would otherwise be disparate research outputs, as well as communicating results to raise awareness in this area.

TIPS is one of the participating institutions.

The others are: Bloomberg New Energy Finance, Climate Policy Initiative, Gaia, Overseas Development Institute, OECD, United Nations Environment Programme, World Resources Institute and Zambia Institute of Environmental Management.
