Article
Full-text available
This study examines how political and technical factors influence climate finance coordination in different country contexts. Emerging scholarly and policy literature calls for the improved coordination of climate finance to enhance the effectiveness of multiple sources of funding for adaptation and mitigation purposes, with country ownership over...
Article
Full-text available
Climate change and development are strongly interconnected. An efficient use of financial resources would, thus require alignment between climate finance and development priorities, as set out in the context of both the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In this paper, we investigate to what extent climate-related offi...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Two major bilateral climate funds exist that support developing countries with climate aid: the Climate Investment Funds and Green Climate Fund. However, their differing structures and overlapping focus areas create redundancies and competition. This policy brief argues that funding coordination challenges must be considered in a political context...
Technical Report
Full-text available
This policy brief aims to expand our collective view of justice in adaptation by considering the globally interconnected nature of our economy and society. Building on the literature on just transitions for climate change mitigation, it presents a novel framework for a just transition for adaptation, with the objective of achieving globally just re...
Article
Full-text available
Since 2015 there has been a surge of international agendas to address a range of global challenges: climate change (Paris Agreement), sustainable development (Agenda 2030), disaster risk reduction (Sendai Framework) and sustainable urban transformation (New Urban Agenda). Health is relevant to all of these agendas. Policymakers must now translate t...
Article
Full-text available
We surveyed members of the adaptation community about their views on high-end climate change—here defined as global average temperature increase exceeding 2 °C at the end of the century—at consecutive conferences in 2016 and 2018. Most strikingly our surveys show that a majority of the community disagrees that the Paris Agreement has reduced the po...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Key messages • The climate finance landscape in Kenya is highly complex due to a wide range of funding priorities and sources, as well as overlaps between climate finance and development assistance. • The effectiveness of Kenya's climate finance coordination mechanisms is limited by technical and political barriers. Technical barriers include capac...
Article
Full-text available
This new analysis — from SEI, DIE, Linköping University and Utrecht University — looks at six countries and identifies the synergies and conflicts between nationally determined contributions and Sustainable Development Goals.

Article
In 2015, the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development were adopted, bringing about a shift from legally binding emission mitigation targets based on common metrics for developed countries only, towards voluntary commitments for all. Our content analysis of countries’ climate activities in 164 nationally determined contributio...
Article
Full-text available
This editorial introduces and summarizes the special issue on "Global and transnational governance of climate adaptation". It identifies future research questions and why this topic is important under Paris Agreement and the global stock-take.
Article
Full-text available
Transnational climate governance has mainly been preoccupied with climate change mitigation, both in practice and as studied in academic literature. However, transnationally governed adaptation initiatives are emerging and increasing in scale. This paper analyses the effectiveness of transnational adaptation initiatives as a particular knowledge ga...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Over the last decade, there has been the growing expectation from the international community that the private sector will become an important source of finance for climate change adaptation in developing countries. However, this potential still remains unclear. While it is expected that some private actors will purposefully or unconsciously invest...
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...
Article
Full-text available
Despite the Paris Agreement target of holding global temperature increases 1.5 to 2 °C above pre-industrial levels, high-end climate change (HECC) scenarios going beyond 4 °C are becoming increasingly plausible. HECC may imply increasing climate variability and extremes as well as the triggering of tipping points, posing further difficulties for ad...
Article
Quantitative models of transitions, such as energy systems models and integrated assessment models, do not usually represent social processes, institutions and politics. Their view of societal transitions, along with the governance required to drive them, is therefore limited. Socio-technical systems approaches, in contrast, represent the social si...
Article
Full-text available
Nationally determined contributions (NDCs) were key to reaching the Paris Agreement and will be instrumental in implementing it. Research was quick to identify the ‘headline numbers’ of NDCs: if these climate action plans were fully implemented, global mean warming by 2100 would be reduced from approximately 3.6 to 2.7°C above pre-industrial levels...
Article
Full-text available
Nationally determined contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement are mainly statements of the actions a country intends to take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but many indicate other priorities and ambitions that contribute to broader sustainable development. The new NDC-SDG Connections tool can identify the most important overlaps and pot...

Article
Full-text available
Since the 70s, Sweden has gradually replaced oil with renewables to provide energy for heating, and today the country uses the highest total amount of renewable energy for heating of all EU Member States. However, there are signs of new tensions in the heat-energy system, and of lock-in of less sustainable practices. Using the multi-level perspecti...
Article
Full-text available
We explore the individual and institutional conditions and the climate information used to underpin decision-making for adaptation to high-end climate change (HECC) scenarios in a land resource management context. HECC refers to extreme projections with global annual temperature increases of over 4 °C. We analyse whether HECC scenarios are used in...

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'...
Research
Full-text available
Private investments in climate-change adaptation are important. First, because the costs of adaptation are too high to be met by the public sector alone. And second, developed countries pledged to mobilise USD 100 billion annually by 2020 to support developing countries’ climate change mitigation and adaptation; the private sector is described as a...

Full-text available
This brief presents a comprehensive analytical framework for understanding private adaptation finance. The framework focuses on the interaction between enabling environments, mobilization, and delivery mechanisms. It examines not only how investment can occur, but also different ways in which adaptation objectives might fail to be met. Efforts to c...
Article
Climate change adaptation, which has previously been seen as a national and local matter, is today systematically addressed by international institutions such as the UNFCCC, the FAO and the WTO. Research has focused on the overarching institutional architecture of global adaptation, particularly how it relates to development, political economy, eff...
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...
Article
Ända sedan det kalla krigets slut har diskursen om den liberala demokratin varit hegemonisk. Det, menar vi, har skapat en osund situation där demokratins utformning och innehåll inte längre diskuteras. Därför har vi valt att undersöka den globala rättviserörelsens demokrativision, den enda som idag skulle kunna representera ett legitimt alternativ...
Article
Sustainable Development is a widely acknowledged term in today's society. However, because of its vagueness and varying definitions, it is also a very contested term. This essay will focus on the World Commission on Environment and Development’s (WCED) Brundtland Report of 1987, which is also known as 'Our Common Future'. The report's analysis seek...

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.
