Climate Policy Initiative’s 2017 edition of the Global
Landscape of Climate Finance updates the most
comprehensive assessment of annual climate fnance
ﬂows with data from 2015 and 2016, providing, for the
frst time, a fve-year trend analysis on the how, where,
and from whom fnance is ﬂowing toward low-carbon
and climate-resilient actions globally in order to identify
trends, gaps, and opportunities to scale up investment.
As with previous reports, the fgures identifed in this
Landscape represent overall global fnance ﬂows and
should be compared with estimates of total investment
needed consistent with the goal of limiting global
temperature rise to below 2 degrees Celsius.
