Financing the transition from brown to green. How to track country performance towards low carbon, climate-resilient economies

The understanding of how countries are progressing in their transition from brown to green models of economic development is growing. However, there remains no single set of indicators to allow an assessment of the financing of this transition to low carbon, climate-resilient economies.

This paper develops a comprehensive picture on what financing the transition to a low carbon, climate-resilient economy looks like. Drawing on several stakeholder interviews and an expert workshop, Part A maps the landscape of financing the transition and Part B proposes a concrete set of indicators to measure country progress.
