In response to countries demand on climate change finance in-depth preparation and implementation, United Nations Development Programme and the World Bank in collaboration with the USAID ADAPT Asia-Pacific project, German Development Cooperation (GIZ) and the UK Department for International Development (DFID) organized the Climate Change Public Expenditure and Institutional Reviews (CPEIRs) workshop facilitated by UNDP Asia Pacific Regional Centre (APRC) on 10-12 September 2012 in Bangkok.
The purpose of the workshop was to explore how CPEIRs can be used to integrate climate change issues into expenditure decision-making and contribute to climate change responsive fiscal policy, expenditure planning and programming.
The 3-day workshop brought together officials from Ministries of Finance, Planning and Environment, technical practitioners, civil society organizations, parliamentarians and development partners. The workshop drew on the experience of countries that have undertaken CPEIRs and countries where reviews are currently underway in Asia Pacific, Africa and Latin America. The workshop also drew on the experience of selected OECD countries and contributions from climate change and public finance specialists developing technical guidance on these issues.
