This toolkit is a set of knowledge material intended to give an overview of existing climate finance sources for low-carbon transport. It is based on GIZ’s broader definition of climate finance as all public and private financial flows for climate projects in developing countries and emerging economies.
The publications listed in this toolkit explore both public and private financing and funding sources at the domestic level as well as international development finance and climate funds that are eligible for sustainable transport. The structure of the toolkit reflects the relative importance of public domestic sources, private sources, international development finance and climate funds in terms of their share in transport spending. Additional training material and knowledge products are included in the final section.
This toolkit is targeted at national and local policy makers, transport planners and operators. It aims to enhance their understanding of the complex climate finance architecture and to support them in finding the right source of financing and funding for low-carbon transport projects in order to ensure financial sustainability.
