Global Coal Public Finance Tracker

The Global Coal Public Finance Tracker is a new project tracking the public financial support for coal plant projects globally. The tracker currently includes foreign flows of financing for coal that come from public finance institutions such as export credit agencies and development banks. The data covers all projects under development since 2013, including currently proposed projects, which have received or are likely to receive public finance. The tracker provides multiple levels of information, with information about the major countries financing or insuring coal projects, and information about the countries receiving support for coal projects. For the financing countries, data includes the names of government-affiliated financial institutions involved in projects, the list of individual projects abroad, and the amount of capacity (megawatts) being supported. For the recipient countries, data includes the list of foreign countries and financing institutions conducting coal projects within their jurisdiction, a list of the projects, and the amount of capacity being supported.
