This working paper explores how countries can enhance their ‘climate finance readiness’ by understanding their internal political economy. Studies in three countries reveal how actors’ various ideas and incentives influence their choices and decisions on climate finance projects. Understanding how these factors interact — understanding the political economy — can help policymakers manage expectations and stakeholder risks early on, prioritise equitable climate finance investments and fashion a consensus from divergent ideas.
