The US Fast-Start Finance Contribution
Developed country governments have repeatedly committed to provide new and additional finance to help developing countries transition to low-carbon and climate resilient growth. This assessment considers US efforts to provide “fast start finance” (FSF) in fiscal years 2010 and 2011 in the context of the pledge by developed countries to mobilize $30 billion1 from 2010 to 2012 under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It is part of a series scrutinizing how developed countries are defining, delivering, and reporting FSF.
