The High-Level Advisory Group on Climate Change Financing was established by the Secretary-General on 12 February 2010. The Group’s mandate was to study potential sources of revenue that will enable achievement of the level of climate change financing that was promised during the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December 2009.
As part of its work, the Group has developed and analyzed potential sources on how to significantly scale-up long-term financing for mitigation and adaptation strategies in developing countries from various public as well as private sources.
