Making the Most of Climate Action Financing in the European Union

Opportunities, Co-Benefits and Recommendations

The brochure addresses the current system of mainstreaming climate action across the EU budget and the objective to spend at least 20 percent of the total budget on climate action. This publication provides an overview of the different opportunities on EU level to finance low-carbon projects and their current use. Besides the public funding possibilities, private climate finance (opportunities) are also shown. Furthermore, the results of an analysis of the co-benefits of climate action financing are presented. Finally, recommendations derived from a BMU funded workshop and studies are presented to serve the further development of climate action financing through the EU budget.
