Rio+20: Financial Resources for Improved International Environmental Governance


In the run-up to the Rio+20 summit, which takes place in June 2012, this study investigates the current system for financing international environmental governance (IEG). The current architecture for IEG finance consists of a growing number of bilateral and multilateral actors, funds and financial mechanisms which leads to incoherence, inefficiencies and extra burdens on recipient countries. The resulting intransparency is exerbated by the lack of a comprehensive system for tracking. Against this background, this study investigates the current state of the IEG funding system from a qualitative and – to a lesser degree – quantitative angle. Some of its flaws are discussed as are options for its improvement – all with a view to formulating recommendations for the Rio+20 summit.
