About us

The website www.germanclimatefinance.de is a joint project of Brot für die Welt, CARE Germany-Luxembourg, Germanwatch, Heinrich-Böll-Foundation and Oxfam Germany. The website has existed since 2011 and aims to provide an independent accompaniment of the international climate finance provided by the German government. More backround on the website…

The website is managed by a steering group which consists of representatives of the participating organisations. The members bring in their expertise on different topics related to climate finance and use the website as a platform to publish articles and publications. The steering group is supported by a website coordinator. The website also collaborates with other civil society actors that can publish guest articles on the website.
