This paper is intended to build support for research and innovation in the final post-2015 agenda, as well as to stimulate and inform discussion about how to measure the impact of R&D of new and improved health tools targeting the needs of LMICs. The authors build on the work of the Lancet Commission on Investing in Health, which called for doubling current R&D investments in health from all countries to bridge the divide between the richest and poorest within a generation. To achieve this bold vision, the authors contend that research and innovation for health must be a central component of the post-2015 development agenda.

The report’s main message is that finance alone will not be sufficient to promote and achieve the post-2015 development agenda. Policies also matter. Indeed, they are fundamental. Appropriate and coherent policies will ensure that finance is used effectively to achieve results and that it is not wasted or underused. Good policies will also help to ensure that more finance is mobilised as success breeds further success.

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.
