This table includes additional information to the above visualized indicators, i.e. a short definition of this indicator and a description of the politically determined target values as well as explaining the political intention behind selecting this indicator.
This indicator covers the financing of measures to reduce greenhouse gases, adapt to climate change and/or take climate-related action to preserve biodiversity and protect forests (specifically, projects for the conservation and sustainable management of forests as well as reforestation within the REDD+ framework). The measures chiefly take place in developing and emerging countries and are financed using German budget funds (including grant elements of development loans since 2017).
|Target and intention
The Federal Government’s aim is to raise its contribution to international climate finance to 6 billion euros1 from public funds and grant elements of development loans by 2025, thereby trebling the target value for 2014, which was 2 billion euros. In the decisions contained in the Addendum to the Paris Agreement, the industrialised countries reaffirmed their 2009 commitment to collectively provide 100 billion US-dollar from public funds and from private sources mobilised by public funds, every year from 2020 to 2025, for mitigation and adaptation to climate change in developing countries.
