The success of the current international climate change negotiations crucially depends on how much finance is going to be made available to support developing country climate change activities, and it is unlikely that adequate financing will be forthcoming in the absence of an acceptable governance framework. The overall aim of the Reformed Financial Mechanism (RFM) project is to provide such a framework.
