The Climate Aggregation Platform (CAP) is a new initiative to promote the scale-up of financial aggregation – and to reduce the cost of financing - for small-scale, low-carbon energy assets in developing countries.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is implementing the CAP, with initial seed financing from the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
Payments for ecosystem services (PES) occur when a beneficiary or user of an ecosystem service makes a direct or indirect payment to the provider of that service. The idea is that whoever preserves or maintains an ecosystem service should be paid for doing so.
Guarantees can mobilize and leverage commercial financing by mitigating and/or protecting risks (such as political, regulatory, and foreign-exchange risk), notably commercial default or political risks. This note focuses on public guarantees, where a government or an international donor agrees to bear some downside risk, typically by assuming a borrower’s debt obligation in the event of a default.
Private transfers from a migrant worker (i.e. a worker living in a foreign country for one year or longer) to a recipient in his/her country of origin. When remittances are not used for immediate consumption needs, they can be saved and invested to the benefit of the local economy of the worker’s country of origin.

SDG Alignment and Budget Tagging: Towards an SDG Taxonomy - Analysis for Colombia
As part of the Decade of Action (2020-2030), the United Nations system began implementing
the global initiative to strengthen national financing frameworks for the
SDGs, known as Integrated National Financing Frameworks or INFF. A significant part
of the analysis of all sources of financing for the SDGs is the public budget. This
document presents guidelines for (i) aligning public budgets (and development cooperation)
to the SDGs, and (ii) presents relevant inputs for developing local SDG taxonomies
to explore public budget and private sector contribution to SDG Financing.
The guidelines are presented in a step-by-step way to aid users in tailoring to local
circumstances the analysis of SDG Financing and are based on the implementation of
SDG budget tagging by the INFF-Colombia Joint Program.
