Mobilizing Climate Finance: How and Why Fund Design Matters 

Rishikesh Bhandary

Monday, September 30, 2019

12:30 pm – 1:45 pm

Cabot 702

The Fletcher School
How do developing countries mobilize finance to address climate change? This talk looks at the role played by national climate funds in crowding in finance from different sources. How do countries choose the institutional design features of these funds? What trade-offs do they face? The national climate funds in focus are Brazil’s Amazon Fund, the Bangladesh Climate Change Resilience Fund, Ethiopia’s Climate Resilient Green Economy Facility, and Indonesia’s funding instrument to tackle forest loss. These funds were first of their kinds when they were set up and their experience forms a vital to understand climate action in developing countries.
RSVP appreciated

We hope you can join the first research seminar hosted by CIERP and the CREATE (Climate, Renewable Energy, Agriculture, Technology, Ecology) working group! 
A light lunch will be served. Please bring your own beverage.
Rishikesh Ram Bhandary is a doctoral candidate at the Fletcher School and a predoctoral fellow at the Climate Policy Lab at CIERP. His research interests include the architecture of climate finance, climate negotiations, the linkages between governance of climate change and sustainable development. His dissertation investigates how developing countries have sought to mobilize climate finance by setting up national climate funds. Through case studies of national climate funds in Bangladesh, Brazil, Ethiopia, and Indonesia, this study harvests early lessons on the opportunities and challenges afforded by national climate funds. The dissertation also utilizes Fiji's ongoing exploratory process of designing its national climate fund as a real-time study of how a country designs its national climate fund.
