That increasing amounts of public adaptation funding have succeeded in targeting the poorest countries and focusing attention on disaster risk reduction -- although much more is needed? These are just some of the "10 things to know about climate finance in 2014" which this compilation of graphics is highlighting. It provides noteworthy insights from ongoing monitoring efforts of Climate Funds Update, the joint cooperation project by the Heinrich Boell Stiftung North America and the Overseas Development Institute over the past year.
