Under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, international financial assistance is expected to support African and other developing countries as they prepare for and adapt to the impacts of climate change. The impact of this finance depends on how much finance is mobilized and where it is targeted. However, there has been no com...

Today, many parts of the world are undergoing industrial change, particularly as the global agenda to decarbonize our economies gathers momentum. Managing the impacts of these changes is necessary but can be difficult. By looking at historical cases, we highlight some lessons that can help future transitions be less disruptive and more just. Devel...

Navigating coal mining closure and societal change: learning from past cases of mining decline
Article
The ‘bottom up’ formulation of the nationally determined contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement is an opportunity for countries to promote synergies between climate action and other development priorities. We hypothesize that countries will have prepared the NDCs strategically such that they reinforce national development agendas. This, we...

Background Energy is given high priority in the national development agendas of most Small Island Developing States (SIDS) because it is intertwined with social, economic and environmental challenges. Many SIDS experience heavy fiscal burdens associated with imported fuels, some have very low electricity access rates, and islands also have a strong...

In early 2017, Eskom — South Africa’s state-owned electricity utility — announced the imminent closure of five of its coal-fired power stations.1 The announcement sparked a strong reaction from trade unions(COSATU 2017b; Seeth 2017) and a public debate about how changes in South Africa’s energy system will affect workers and communities. This was a...

The Politics of Fossil Fuel Subsidies and their Reform - edited by Jakob Skovgaard August 2018
Technical Report

Over the last decade, Indonesian coal production has risen dramatically. The country is now one of the world’s largest exporters of coal, and the largest exporter of steam coal. This expansion comes at a time of transition for the international coal industry. Renewable energy costs are becoming competitive with coal-based electricity, the internat...

The Caribbean region's Small Island Developing States (SIDS) face considerable threats from climate change, and considerable costs to cope with and adapt to climate impacts that exceed their financial capacity. This paper analyses climate finance flows to Caribbean SIDS, using data from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OEC...

This working paper analyses the political factors that shape subsidies to coal extraction in Colombia, and explores why and how those subsidies have been promoted.
Article
In Kenya, as in many Sub-Saharan African countries, ‘clean cookstoves’ are promoted as a solution to various health, environmental and livelihood challenges. After decades of programs, there is a need to better understand if clean cookstoves are really transforming household energy use, and if not why not. Combining theory from Technological Innova...
Article
As globalization and other pressures intensify the economic, social and biophysical connections between people and places, it seems likely that adaptation responses intended to ameliorate the impacts of climate change might end up shifting risks and vulnerability between people and places. Building on earlier conceptual work in maladaptation and ot...

The NDC Explorer allows users to analyse and compare (Intended) Nationally Determined Contributions through interactive maps and bar charts, as well as country files. The NDC Explorer holds 60 different sub-categories divided over the following main categories: Mitigation; Adaptation; Finance and Support; Planning and Process; and 'Broader Picture'...
Article
We examine different private financial flows for climate- related activities on the basis of how the investors’ motives connect with the recipients’ objectives. We present an analysis of accountability chains, focusing on two account- ability parameters: (i) the degree to which different actors in the finance chain share similar “end goals” for the...

The exponential growth in global populations, economic activity and resource utilization means it is becoming increasingly difficult to satisfy global demand for a number of fundamental resources, while some key ecosystems services are under stress. The likelihood of future resource scarcities have begun to influence the positions taken within inte...

The practice of burning charcoal to service household cooking and heating needs, as is common in urban Lusaka, creates not only direct health and environmental problems but is also closely linked with the ability of communities to adapt to the impacts of climate change. Charcoal production and use directly reduces the availability of mature trees a...

At the international level, India is emerging as a key actor in climate negotiations, while at the national and sub-national levels, the climate policy landscape is becoming more active and more ambitious. It is essential to unravel this complex landscape if we are to understand why policy looks the way it does, and the extent to which India might...

This report presents options for overcoming obstacles and reaching an agreement on adaptation financing as part of a Copenhagen Agreed Outcome at COP 15 in Copenhagen in December, 2009. It submits that such an agreement on adaptation financing is in fact vital to reaching a post-2012 international agreement on climate change. Adopted at the thirtee...

The NDC Explorer allows users to analyse and compare (Intended) Nationally Determined Contributions through interactive maps, bar charts, and country files. The NDC Explorer holds 60 different categories divided over Mitigation; Adaptation; Finance and Support; Planning and Process; and 'Broader Picture'. The latter category includes (I)NDC coverage of other international debates including Sustainable Development Goals, fossil fuel subsidy reform, and green growth. The tool is developed to create transparency, trust and accountability and supports the global efforts for effective and ambitious NDC implementation. It also forms a basis for research on INDCs and NDCs.
