Document Summary

The efforts of the Government of Nepal to address the impacts of climate change have been buoyed by increased access to different funding mechanisms under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) such as the Green Climate Fund (GCF), and discussions on climate finance are proving ever more critical in moving toward low-emission and climate-resilient development pathways. It was with the objective of rendering these discussions more comprehensive, accessible and productive that the Ministry of Finance has published this glossary—with financial support from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) and technical support from the United Nations Development Programme and the United Nations Environment Programme—to provide clarity on commonly-used terms and terminologies in the realm of climate finance.
