Climate finance — international and national finance for mitigating and adapting to climate change — is stimulating innovative national planning that links climate resilience with more sustainable and equitable economic growth. 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.
