We have been instructed to prepare a literature review of what is understood as the contributor base in the context of the new collective quantified goal (“NCQG”). You have requested that this literature review focuses on precisely what the “sources, instruments and channelsare, as referenced in Article 9.3 Paris Agreement.

We set out below some background information (section 2); we then analyse the discussions regarding the contributors’ base and sources of funding in the NGQG (section 3) and provide a summary listing these main sources and their respective instruments (section 4). Annexure 1 sets out the list of literature reviewed, with access links. Annexure 2 sets out a tabular summary of that literature.
