climate change is a development issue
Climate Change is a Development Issue
  • Developing countries are already being affected
  • The poorest countries and communities stand to suffer the earliest and the most
  • Development gains and achievement of the Millennium Development Goals are at risk
  • Lower carbon and climate resilient growth offers opportunities for sustainable development with multiple benefits
developing countries most at risk 6 climate threats
Developing Countries Most At Risk:6 Climate Threats

adaptation challenges over time will depend on mitigation progress
Adaptation Challenges Over Time Will Depend on Mitigation Progress

Likely change already “baked in”

Likely change with successful mitigation action

Likely change without significant action on mitigation

Risk of catastrophic events increases with temperature

climate change is not new for the world bank
Climate Change is not new for the World Bank
  • 1993 – Began implementing / leveraging GEF funding for climate change
  • 1999 – Pioneered Carbon Finance through $180 million Prototype Carbon Fund
  • 1999 – ”Fuel for Thought” Environment Strategy for the Energy Sector
  • 2001 – Adopted Environment Strategy with climate change pillar
  • 2006-08 – Clean Energy Investment Framework (CEIF):
      • (i) increased access to energy, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa; (ii) accelerated transition to a low carbon energy economy; and (iii) adaptation to climate variability and change.
  • 2007 – IDA and Climate Change Paper
recent progress in climate change
Recent progress in climate change
  • Share of support for low-carbon energy projects up from 28% in FY03–05 to 40% in Fy06-08, with an overall increase in energy lending from $6 billion to $11 billion
    • GEF and Carbon Finance (CF) contributed US$546 million, or 13 %, with significant leveraging
  • RE and EE lending exceeded Bonn commitment 1.5 years ahead of schedule
  • CF business grown to $2 billion, with two new facilities - CPF and FCPF- approved in September 2007
  • Low carbon growth and adaptation studies
  • Pilot program to begin measuring GHG emissions of the WBG lending portfolio is underway.
  • Strengthened partnership with MDBs
access and low carbon energy
Access and Low Carbon Energy

Providing Energy Services for A Better Quality of Life.

Worldwide, nearly 2.4 billion people use traditional biomass fuels—wood, agricultural residues, and dung—for cooking and heating

Nearly 1.6 billion do not have access to electricity.

Four out of five people without access to electricity live in rural areas

Without access to modern and sustainable energy services, poor people are deprived of opportunities for economic development and improved living standards.

gef and wbg synergies
GEF and WBG Synergies
  • GEF grant funding to pilot innovative approaches and capacity building for mitigation
  • GEF funding is necessary to proceed with adaptation mainstreaming in development and to build knowledge base
    • GEF Trust Fund Strategic Priority on Adaptation $50 million (committed)
    • Voluntary Funds: Special Climate Change Fund ($90 million) & Least Developed Countries Fund ($180 million)
  • Adaptation Fund (GEF-administered): $500- 800 mlln by 2012
  • GEF helped leverage progress with WBG low carbon investments
key message scaling up
Key message: Scaling up!
  • Huge financing gap for developing countries, much beyond current funding under UNFCCC
    • mitigation: up to US$ 100 blln per year by 2030
    • adaptation: up to US$ 30-70 blln per year 2030
    • private sector to account for 80% at least of financial and investment flows
  • The challenges ahead in mobilizing financing at scale
  • Massive technology, capacity and knowledge needs
how we will develop a comprehensive strategic framework on climate change and development sfccd
How we will develop a comprehensive Strategic Framework on Climate Change and Development (SFCCD)
  • Neutrality to UNFCCC Negotiations
  • Flexibility to accommodate new developments
  • Working with Multiple Partners
  • Inclusive and Consultative Process
neutrality to unfccc negotiations
Neutrality to UNFCCC Negotiations
  • Neutral to any party position
  • Helping countries understand the impacts Piloting innovative instruments and approaches that help inform the development of a future regime (e.g. IDA15 as a platform for mainstreaming adaptation, Carbon Finance, Climate Investment Funds)
  • Advocacy and capacity building
flexibility to accommodate new developments
The Strategic Framework will evolve as international negotiations and scientific knowledge and experience on the ground evolve

It will pilot and test new approaches and benefit from learning and on-going consultations with various stakeholders

Flexibility to Accommodate New Developments
