Fiscal Policies for Development and Climate Action (Full Report)

Climate policy has traditionally been viewed as the domain of energy and environment ministries. This report argues that environmental tax reforms, coupled with adaptation and risk management strategies, are among the most effective means to fight climate change and bolster economic resilience to natural disasters while raising human wellbeing.

The Effects of Weather Shocks on Economic Activity: What are the Channels of Impact?

Global temperatures have increased at an unprecedented pace in the past 40 years. This paper finds that increases in temperature have uneven macroeconomic effects, with adverse consequences concentrated in countries with hot climates, such as most low-income countries. In these countries, a rise in temperature lowers per capita output, in both the short and medium term, through a wide array of channels: reduced agricultural output, suppressed productivity of workers exposed to heat, slower investment, and poorer health.

St. Lucia: Climate Change Policy Assessment

St. Lucia has been a leader among vulnerable Caribbean states in prioritizing a response to climate change, both nationally and in international fora. Its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) outlines a balanced mitigation strategy backed by costed investment plans, and a qualitative adaptation strategy with identified priority sectors. This paper takes stock of St. Lucia’s plans to manage climate change, from the perspective of their macroeconomic implications.

Coping With Collapse: A Stock-Flow Consistent Monetary Macrodynamics of Global Warming

This paper presents a macroeconomic model that combines the economic impact of climate change with the pivotal role of private debt. Using a Stock-Flow Consistent approach based on the Lotka–Volterra logic, we couple its nonlinear monetary dynamics of underemployment and income distribution with abatement costs. A calibration of our model at the scale of the world economy enables us to simulate various planetary scenarios.

Climate Policies and Nationally Determined Contributions: Reconciling the Needed Ambition with the Political Economy.

Countries have pledged to stabilize global warming at a 1.5 to 2°C increase. Either target requires reaching net zero emissions before the end of the century, which implies a major transformation of the economic system. This paper reviews the literature on how policymakers can design climate policies and their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to reach zero-net emissions before the end of the century in a socially and politically-acceptable manner.

Climate Change Adaptation and Financial Protection: Synthesis of Key Findings from Colombia and Senegal.

Developing countries are disproportionately affected by the rising trend of losses from climate-related extreme events. These losses are projected to continue to increase in future, driven by climate change and the accumulation of people and assets in high-risk areas. Effective climate change policies are needed to reduce the accumulation of risk, combined with instruments and tools to help retain, share or transfer financial losses if an extreme event occurs.

Hard Choices Integrated Approaches: A Guidance Note of Climate Change Financing Frameworks.

This Note outlines the core elements, processes, workfows, and outputs of a  Climate Change Financing Framework (CCFF). This is achieved by reviewing the roles and value-added aspects that a CCFF plays in facilitating a whole of government response to the challenges presented by climate change.

Accessing Climate Finance: A Step-By-Step Approach for Practitioners.

This handbook is conceived as a toolbox for key government and other stakeholders in partner countries in their efforts to access climate finance. The ClimaSouth project uses an approach to access finance through learning-bydoing and capacity building. Facilitating the development of proposals and interfacing with sources of finance for climate-relevant/-specific projects and programs is the vehicle through which capacity for climate finance is further enhanced.
