The commitment to jointly mobilise $100bn of climate finance a year promised to developing countries in 2009, and again in 2015, is critically important to helping developing countries transition to cleaner economies and protecting those worst affected by the impacts of climate change. The UK Presidency has been pushing developed countries to meet existing commitments and come forward with ambitious post-2020 climate finance pledges, to achieve and surpass the $100bn a year goal. The COP President Designate has also asked Germany and Canada to lead on the development of a Delivery Plan which sets out how donor countries will meet the goal. This plan will be published in advance of COP.
