Global Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Fund (GEEREF): a model climate fund?

Working paper

Written by Neil Bird

Working paper

This briefing paper examines the Global Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Fund through the lens of climate finance. The fund is assessed by using a number of principles and criteria that have emerged within the UNFCCC process. It is an innovative financial mechanism that holds out promise of securing further private sector investments in clean energy. However, whilst much has gone into the design of the fund, the real test – over its implementation – has yet to begin.
