At COP 15 in Copenhagen in 2009, developed countries agreed to provide US$100 billion in climate finance to developing countries each year. Fifteen years on, there is still no common definition of climate finance, leading to inconsistent reporting, a lack of faith in the headline numbers and a loss of trust by developing countries. As the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) prepares to adopt a New Collective Quantified Goal on Climate Finance (NCQG) at COP 29 later this year, what should count towards the target? And who decides?
