CDKN aims to help decision-makers select and deploy financial instruments – such as grants, concessional loans, equity and guarantees — to fund climate adaptation and mitigation activities. This guide summarizes the barriers to financing mitigation and adaptation activities, as well as discussing factors to consider when selecting and implementing financial instruments. The key financial instruments and modalities considered in this guide are discussed in relation to the Green Climate Fund, but the lessons are applicable to other channels for climate finance. This Guide concludes that understanding barriers related to mitigation and adaptation at the project level is important to identify those projects where investment subsidies will be most efficient. The purpose of the financial instrument needs to be clearly determined. The choice of financial instrument must be reflected in the governance and operations of the GCF and its partners (including national climate finance institutions). Furthermore, national climate finance institutions need a certain level of expertise to make optimal use of the support.
