The Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) has just published a new report examining international public flows of climate finance toIndian Ocean and African Small Island Developing States. The report looks at financial support provided to Cape Verde, the Comoros, Guinea-Bissau, the Maldives, Mauritius, São Tomé and Principe, and the Seychelles from 2010 to 2015.


The work describes the sources of climate finance, its distribution among recipient countries, the shares targeting adaptation and mitigation, the spread across sectors, the modes of delivery and intermediaries involved in programming the funds, as well as the share of committed funds that has been disbursed so far. For each country, the report includes detailed snapshots of climate finance, supported by infographics.

This is the third in a series of reports exploring how climate finance has been working for SIDS. Previous reports are available for the Pacific, and for the Caribbean regions.

On the occasion of the One Planet Summit, CARE and Oxfam have released a new briefing paper on adaptation finance: “Finance for adaptation and loss and damage: Time to step up action,” available here:
