The services included writing several comprehensive reports covering large countries’ views and preparations for the Paris negotiations, and the results of the Paris negotiations. With a focus on climate finance, carbon pricing mechanisms and capacity building of developing countries, were assessed. The work also covered assessing Finland’s role in providing climate finance and cooperative approaches for mitigation.
