Climate finance in the agriculture and land use sector between 2000-2019 - Special update
This document is a special update of the recent FAO analysis, “Climate finance in the agriculture and land use sector – global and regional trends between 2000 and 2018” and includes newly released data for 2019. Climate finance is a fundamental element of the global development agenda and has been accelerating in the past years. The recent FAO analysis identified that between 2000 and 2018 the share of global climate finance in the agriculture and land use sector decreased, passing from an average of 45 percent of the total flows at the beginning of the millennium, to 24 percent in 2013 where it has remained. The total sum of contributions to the agriculture and land use sector between 2000 and 2018 amounted to USD 122 billion, representing 26 percent of the global climate finance flows to all sectors. The potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is not yet visible in these figures and is expected to be analysed when data for 2020 is released.
