Abstract

This chapter highlights potential sources of global climate finance mainly for the compensation mechanism in relation to loss and damage, and does not attempt full details of ongoing activities in climate finance generally. Some of the programs such as the Special Climate Change Fund (SCCF) and several others sound big in name and provide meager resources to be able to contribute to tangible results, leave alone constitute even five percent of relief in terms of compensation for loss and damages due to climate change.
