"EU finance ministers call for transparency in climate finance", 6 Nov 2018

Following a meeting in Brussels, the ministers emphasised that public finance alone “can never be sufficient” in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to the effects of climate change.

The transparency framework is one of the most contentious issues in negotiations ahead of next month’s Cop24 summit, where countries must agree on rules for meeting the Paris Agreement...

In addition, the ministers urged multilateral development banks (MDBs) to do their part and “adopt responsible investment policies and to phase out the financing of coal power plants”.
