How climate finance can support sustainable development

Nanki Kaur, Tighe Geoghegan

IIED Briefing, 4 pages

This paper explores some of those initiatives, and how climate finance could effectively contribute to both medium-term national development strategies and longer-term global development goals and targets, such as the Sustainable Development Goals that will succeed the Millennium Development Goals from 2015.
